Rash on wrist and forearm

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on wrist and forearm


Avatar n tn I noticed about 3 weeks ago when I came back from lunch that I had a rash on my right forearm (mainly on my wrist). I didn't know what it was but they were very small redish pink spots that were slightly raised. Over the next few weeks they have gone away and come back and my other forearm as well as the same forearm that it originally appered on. At first I though it was just stress causing this b/c I was having a stressful day at work when I first noticed it.

Avatar f tn After blood was drawn and needle removed, the wrist shock sensation went away. The nurse told me to wriggle my fingers and not lean on my left forearm for at least 10 minutes when the feeling should go away. The next day I noticed when I twist my left forearm or move to pick up my almost 2 year old (twisting my forearm to do so) I get a shooting pain, electric shock feeling on the outer side of my forearm. It scares me every time.
Avatar f tn 3 tendon crossover on right forarm very painful for week. Used brace on wrist. rash with swelling covered 3/4 of right forearm. happened while working in my flowerbed which has heavy mulch and goes under a holly bush. Please could you suggest possible causes to research. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn The first sign is usually a tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain on the skin. After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn I developed small red bumps on the inside of my wrist/forearm last night. They were not itchy - in fact, the only way I discovered them was when I ran my fingers over my arm and felt the bumps. They were a little bit itchy this morning, but I ran some hot water over them and the itching stopped. So far, they have not itched at all tonight. My main concern is that I found out today a woman who has been sitting at my desk at work also has a rash in the same area.
Avatar f tn My wrist is a little rotated so that it is showing a little bit of bone that’s popped out in the left corner. It is not a cyst. What can I do to realign my wrist and forearm bones? Please help! Thanks!
Avatar n tn Tuesday I had one on my right wrist, wednesday the bump on my right middle finger turned into a cluster of tiny bumps, and on thursday I started getting itchy on my neck, stomach, waistline, there were a few more bumps on my right and left hands and then the right index finger started, I then popped the bumps on my forearm, right index and left middle and they oozed a clear liquid. Now friday I notice I have 4 on my right ring finger. They kind of itch, but nothing severe. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn My husband has developed a lot of whitehead small spots on his forearms over the past few days. He thought they were spots and popped them but nothing came out. They start from his wrist and don't go beyond his elbow and are only on the front of his arm. Having visited the pharmacy they gave me an antihistamine cream to rub on and suggested it might be a heat rash. I know it's difficult to suggest what they might be, but any help?
Avatar f tn my husband has a smooth painless lump on his forearm above the wrist to the right side. you can't notice the bump unless you look deeply but when i touch it you feel it and it's not hard at all. what is this?
Avatar f tn ve been icing it and taking ibuprofen but as the day has gone on, the swelling has increased in both surface area and girth. The bruising is also spreading and covers about 1/3 of the forearm. Flexing my wrist causes my hand to go asleep, not unlike the pins and needles in my pinky and ring finger from the suspected CTS. Drs office is on emergency only till Monday. Am I safe to wait till then?
Avatar m tn I have forearm and wrist pain.The pain is concentrated on the left and upper sides of my left wrist and forearm. I also happen to have a very large bruise on the upper side of my elbow, although I did not hit my elbow against anything. The pain occurs whenever my wrist is under heart level.Whenever I raise the wrist, it will take a few seconds for the pain to subside.
Avatar m tn As stated above, I have them on my legs as well, from the thigh to just above the knee and as for my arms, from the wrist, to the forearm, and up to the shoulder. I have none of these near my elbows or on the other side of my arms. I am wondering what you guys think? I will be meeting with my primary care doctor for a referral this week.
Avatar m tn Then it seems for the last 4-5 weeks or so I am continually getting sharp leg pains (daily, most times 2 or 3 a day) in the left knee as well as tingling sensations in the left arm,forearm or wrist and then keep getting 1 new red bug bite type skin irritation somewhere on my buttocks. When one goes away it seems another pops up. They dont blister or scab over they just come and go.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months, the inside of my forearm from above my wrist to below my elbow (it seems to run along a tendon on the thumb half of the forearm) has become numb after either weightlifting or golfing. The first time I noticed something was off, the pain felt more like a shooting / burning sensation in the same general area. I would only feel this during a stretch (imagine sitting in a chair & reaching for something on a high shelf behind you).
Avatar m tn 3 weeks later I had a cold and felt a little ill for 2-3 days, I then felt better after resting during that time, a day or 2 later, I developed this rash, it was skin colored but raised like tiny bumps that were on my forearm, inner thigh, and mostly stomach. They were hard to see unless I was in light. After seeing the rash, I had hiv rapid test at 3 weeks and it was negative. The rash last about 5 days(it didnt itch).
Avatar m tn In the middle of my wrist on the underside of my arm; at the wrist on the pinky-finger side; a bit below where the "connection" is from the forearm to the hand on the thumb side. Also, when it is particularly bad, I can sometimes have burning or pain shoot down my arm either on the underside in the middle of my forearm or on the side of my forearm that my pinky-finger is on.
Avatar m tn 48 hours ago I fell off my bike and landed on my wrist and slammed my elbow into the ground. Yesterday I noticed that my elbow is swollen and i cannot put any weight on my wrist and i cannot lift or grip anything. My elbow is not especially tender (although a little). When i attempt to lift, twist or grip (especially with my index and thumb) intense pain shoots down my arm throughout my forearm (and wrist). I also cannot extend my arm fully or turn my palm up to down without pain.
Avatar f tn A few weeks ago i was having savere pain in my elbow and forearm. They did a MRI on just my elbow. The MRI came back clear and he just told me to keep doing therapy on my wrist since he cant think of anything of what it would be. Lately i have had numbness in my thumb, index finger, midfle finger, ring finger and pinky finger as well as pain in this fingers. My wrist,forearm, and elbow gets pain in it. I also get pain when i grip something too long. I also have a hard time laying in bed typing.
1643218 tn?1300891467 Hello, I broke my Ulna a month back and had it casted for 4 weeks. Today the cast has been removed but my wrist is in pain. The swelling on the hand is not there but the wrist area is a bit swollen and somewhat DEFORMED. I can move my wrist a bit making small "O" , but as I move my forearm there is pain and its like I cannot move my forearm to the full extent. Well, My major concern is about the DEFORMITY of the wrist, though in MRI the alignment was normal.
Avatar f tn the others are developing dry skin and are getting itchy and bumpy. I just started putting arnica salve on my arm to make the bruise go away but it makes the rash itch more. What's going on!?
Avatar m tn The carpal tunnel (at your wrist through which the median nerve passes) changes its size depending on the position of the wrist. It’s widest when wrist and hand are straight in line. When the hand is bent up or down, the tunnel becomes slightly smaller. This then presses on the nerve which then causes a pain or tightness right up to the elbow.
Avatar m tn Two days ago a rash in my groins and axilly started. It started as hives and noticed some pinkish raised spots on my right forearm. They change in size, color and sometimes itch. Otherwise no other symptoms. Could this be ARS rash?
Avatar f tn t think much of since I have severe anemia (which is controlled now) and have experienced this before but I had this weird arm pain that comes and goes and is hard to describe, it almost feels like a dull ache/squeeze, it started in my wrist and sometimes it would be in my forearm and sometimes my upper arm, but mostly my forearm.
Avatar f tn Hi NikkiStates, Is your bump on your wrist or on the fleshy part of the forearm? Ganglion cysts hang out around the wrist. But cysts, tumors (benign or not) and lypomas can be in various places .

Avatar m tn Thank you for your response. I never noticed a chancre, but I have read that sometimes it goes undetected. I have not seen anything on my palms or feet. I now have a red rash on my right arm toward the elbow. It is very red and there might be some little red dots along there somewhere else on my arm. I am getting very concerned that it is a maculopapular rash.
