    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
