Red flaky patch on forearm?? [PICTURES]
littleames posted:
I don't know what it is. It looks kind of like ringworm, but it's not a circle. It itches and sometimes it's red. Other times is light pinkish. It's like little red pimples and a dry patch of skin. I've had one before and it went away.
If it is ringworm, then why do I get them? I wash every day with Dove beauty bar for sensitive skin or sometimes I use Dial body wash. I change my sheets every week.

Note: This is after I scratched it.

Try OTC cortizone cream. It looks and sounds similar to my psoriasis that shows up when I'm stressed. Check with your Dr.
