Not Sure If This Belongs Here....

I have a rash on both my forearms.....At first it seemed to be a heat rash, where its just like goosebumps that burn a bit when heat is near it....But now its a big rash on both arms. Its itchy one minute then burns the next, it alsogets irritated when something comes in contact with it.
Now im starting to get what it seems like little dots of eczema on my arms and bit on my tummy too....Its not an allergic reaction and its been around for over 3 weeks now.....What could it be

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
It seemed to be contact dermatitis. I would suggest you to use mild potent steriods topically.If it does not respond then consult dermatologist to evaluate it as without examination diagnosis is tough.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
