    Red mark on arm
    Theharmonyinfantry posted:
    My boyfriend has this red mark that's slightly grown in the past few weeks. We don't know what it is. It doesn't itch or cause any kind of discomfort. It's gotten a little rough since it first showed up too. It's almost the size of a dime. And it kind of looks like it's peeling. Is this any cause for concern? I'm worried.
    Theharmonyinfantry responded:
    Can anyone answer this? He hasn't been in the sun or tanning salon for something like this to develop. He showers daily. Doesn't use any products but dove soap. So I don't know what Is causing this.
