What do red rashes on arms indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
My wife has had these spots on her arm for nearly a year now. The hand gets very itchy. They have begun to appear little more reddish recently.
Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
Give me couple of minutes while I look at the pictures.
Are these waxing and weaning kind of rashes or have they been there constantly for the last one year?
They have been constantly there for the past one year
Does she have similar rashes else where on the body?
Has she used any medicines over these spots?
Hi Dr, no she has them only on her arm. She was given a cream by a Dr here to use but it was no avail. I do not have the name of that medicine on hand.
Is it progressing in size and number since its appearance?
Yes Dr more rashes over time and more reddish in nature and lot more itchy
Did a doctor perform any tests on the skin?
No tests were done on the skin
Let me brief you.
The pictures reveal reddish papules that look similar to eczematous lesion.
It would have been good if i had an opportunity to examine these lesion under broad light.
Do you need any more photos Dr?
I would appreciate if you can send more pictures of those spots.
How do i send you pictures now Dr?
