Common Questions and Answers about Rash on your arm

I've not heard of a rash on your arm being caused by breastfeeding. There are many causes for rushes though, so if it doesn't clear up soon I would get it checked out.
A couple months ago I had an on-off itchy/blotchy rash on my elbows. I was prescribed Clobetasol Propionate, which cleared the rashes quickly. In the interim (to prevent additional rashes) I was putting Gold Bond on my arms daily. One day at the driving range it was very hot and I broke out in a heat rash on my arms, which disappeared when I cooled down. I continued to use Gold Bond, and whenever my body was hot (e.g. after a hot bath) my arms broke out in clear drops.
I have taken shots, predisone tabs, and elecon cream as a topical agent. This time the itching has been going on about a month. I am waiting on an appt. with an allergy doctor at this point.
I have had a rash on my arm for the last 4 months. It was in one spot eventually went away and then popped up in another spot. Both times they appeared to resemble ringworm and the doctor simply said it was a fungal infection. I recently had a horrible stomach bug, my diet has consisted of jello and gatorade for 5 days. I had 2 grilled cheese sandwiches, some tomato soup, some chicken noodle soup. Not a lot. The rash on my arm is completely gone now.
I discovered a pink rash on both arms on the inner part below my elbow today (not there yesterday). The right one is 10cm x 7 cm, and the left is 9.5cm x 6cm. They are not itchy or raised. The edges are rough, but they're slightly darker than the inside. The rash is not raised, but my arms may be slightly swollen. I have had peripheral edema in my ankles and lower legs for the past 2 1/2 months.

I have a rash that first appeared on my arm about 5 years ago when I moved from a dry climate to a very humid one. The rash comes and goes, and generally appears on the antecubital fossa of my right arm. It has been difficult to have it looked at, because it has often disappeared by the time I can get an appointment. At one time I had a PA tell me it was ringworm based soley on appearance, but I have seen ringworm and it doesn't look like it at all.
Hello everyone, I am new to the forums and have found great information here so far. However, I currently have a suspicious rash on my left arm. I have had what seems to be a rash on my arm for about 2-3 months and it has not diminished in size, nor has it grown any larger. It also seems to become light colored at times almost to where you would not even see it. Other times it will be very red with obvious signs of where the rash is located.
Hello, for a few months now a rash has been developing on my arm. At first i thought that it would eventually go away on its own, but instead it seems to be steadily growing (although at a slow pace). It consists of small bumps that are the same color as my skin, and grows in little patches. At first I thought I might be developing a ringworm, but it isn't raised like one. It also isn't itchy unless I'm out in the sun and sweating a lot. Then it seems a bit agitated.
I broke my arm and i can;t move it and i;ve developed a rash under that arm. just wondering if there is somethng i can do to help that?
Hello, i've had a problem as long as i can remember a pimple like/rash on my upper arm(deltoid muscle). people say it's heat bumps, but i always have them. what are they?
Now having read the question, I can say unequivocally that your arm rash was not HSV-2. Poison ivy wouldn't really mimic herpes anyway; if it was typical for poison ivy, and given the plausible exposure to it, you can safely conclude that's what it was. Further, if you had acquired HSV-2 during that past relationship, almost certainly it would have been genital or possibly oral. And your negative blood test results confirm you aren't infected. Finally, you were at very low risk anyway.
About 2 months ago I noticed I had a very mild rash on my arm. Not even red just little white bumps. Then I would scratch it and they bumps would become larger and red. After about 9 days of putting Cortisone and Calamine lotion on it, it went away. It has been 3 weeks since it has disappeared and now it is back. I have not eaten anything out of the norm or used any new products. I do realize that you can develop an allergy at any time.
I have developed a rash on just my right arm at the moment. It consists of mainly small lumps no bigger than pin head size. Some a read from itching others are skin colored. It started just on my hand a couple of days ago, but seemed to have spread to my forearm and also the back of my arm. I am pretty sure this isn't an allergic reaction as i haven't touched or used anything different recently.
They itch, but not that much... so far I have these bumps on my arm, legs, stomach, and just two days ago, they are on the lower part of my tattoo, where all the red ink was used. I have never had a reaction to the ink before, and it doesn't hurt like staph or anything... but I can't figure it out.
The marks grew into a rash on all three areas and now I have stabbing, burning pain in my arm, joint stiffness in the arm and fingers and the rash is pretty sensitive to the touch. I origionally thought it was shingles but the rash isnt turning to blisters but it feels like my nerves are on fire its only been three or four days with this rash but it seems to be getting worse.
Hi I'm a 42 yr old male. Mostly in decent health. I have had a rash form in my "elbow pit", the inner part of my elbow. Between my forearm and upper arm. It is on my dominant arm, the arm where I have my donated blood drawn from, if it matters. I have not had blood drawn in several months. The strange thing is I noticed it a couple months ago. I scratched it a lot at first and then forced myself not to touch it.
(performing bare cunnilingus and protected vaginal sex) I just notice I saw a skin rash on my right arm about the size of dime and it has white bump in the middle. (basically the rash is pink and circle (about 270 degree) .
5cm) on the armpit itself, now it is small bumps on the skin that surrounds the armpit. On the right arm it's about 3.5cm (from the start of armpit up the arm) and about 1.5 cm (on the perimeter of the armpit only on the right side)They have always been reddish, and itchy. I also have a patch of the rash on my chin, under my lower lip. The facial rash isn't itchy, but it has existed for the same duration and I have NEVER had acne.
I have a very painful rash on my armpits. I'm not sure what causes it but I Know that it gets much worse after I shave. Is there any over the counter or homeopathic remedy for this?
I have a rash under both my arm pits that is reoccurring. The rash begins as a red discoloration that is itchy. It then progresses into little red bumps in the red patches that keeps getting more itchy. The skin affected by the rash then cracks along the folds of folds of my arm pit. There is also some clear moistness . I have tried putting baby powder on my arm pits and polysporin on when they crack.
For a couple of months now, i have had to deal with an itchy rash on my left arm. It seems that when I scratch my arms, these bumps appear. Sometimes they appear to have a white center. I find it most irritable at night.I also notice that if I go to bed with minimal scratching, the bumps don't appear to be as raised the morning after. I am concerned for several reasons.
