Suggest treatment for red blotches on arms

default
Posted on Wed, 4 Nov 2015
Question: What are the blood red skin blotches that I get on my arms? They are different shapes, are not raised and look like blood has accumulated under the skin. They do not cause any pain, but I get them several times a month and they take about a week to 10 days to go away.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing here.
I have gone through your query.

It is difficult to say precisely what it is without examination. So I would suggest you to upload the picture of it for better assessment and to provide you with specific advice.

Since how long you have been facing this problem?
Is it occuring on both the arm or on one arm?
Did you had any trauma or blunt impact to your arm?

Presently I would suggest you to apply calamine lotion with alovera to the affected part.
I'll be glad to help you out, kindly upload the picture.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
