Itchy rash, spots on left arm, no pus, no follicle inflammation. Due to insulating fiber glass?

Hi, I have developed an itchy spoty rash only on my left arm. It is very small spots, there is no pus or follicle inflamation. I was in contact with insulating fibre glass a few days ago, but the pictures of an allergic reaction do not look like the rash I have, should I be worried - the itching is driving me insance.

Dear Ifriel. Having worked in the UAE & seen a lot of similar cases, you may be on the right track. Contact with fibre glass may present similarly. Pictures dont often tell the real story. This is why medicine can never be totally taken over by the net-wizards! Apply a topical strong steroid cream & take a non-sedative long acting antihistamine. You should be well on your way to recovery in 24-48 hrs. Avoid further contact with similar products or take preventive measures. Good luck Dr praveen Rodrigues MD Dermatologist & Cosmetologist, Bangalore, India
