What does a red rash on the forearm indicate?

I had a rash on my forearm which was red and raised, it is now flat appearing like a bruise . I now have this same rash between my neck and shoulder, it burns a little like the last and is also itchy, what could it be? no one else in my house has it and I am over age 50. Thanks.
