Weird red rash on arm??

Recommended Posts

I have this strange perfectly round rash on my inner arm... it appeared last week and it's intensly itchy. At first I thought it could be eczema, but its not dry at all... and when I put lotion on it, it seems to get even worse :(

It's a lot redder than shown in the pictures... and it looks kind of shiny in person.

Any thoughts on how to treat this and/or what this could be?

That looks very much like eczema. That spot on the arms is a common place to get atopic dermatitis and if it is shiny, it makes it seem more likely. Hydrocortisone cream will probably help it no matter what it is though, and will probably get rid of the redness and itching.
