Clear liquid forming a continual stream down arm. No cuts or abrasions. Any ideas?

The back side of my right arm is 'weeping' a clear fluid. There are no cuts or abrasions or anything, just a clear liquid forming a conintual stream down my arm. There is no pain, no lump, nothing. It has gone on for about 24 hours and my night shirt is soaked. When it dries, the shirt turns stiff and crusty from the liquid.

Thanks for writing to us.
The oozing out of the clear liquid from the arm is likely to be due to an infection in the area like cellulitis. This needs a direct examination and systemic antibiotics for treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
