Medical evaluation: The lesions (red blotches) on your arms will require direct visualization to make an accurate diagnosis. Biopsy might sometimes be required. I encourage you to have this evaluated by your physician or a dermatologist if the blotches are not resolving.

Happy Skin: Skin is the major protection of our delicate internal tissues from a harsh environment, it is susceptible to injury itself. Sun, shaving and many chemicals are very irritating as well as constant exposure to moisture reduces protective skin oils and sets the skin up for injury. The trick is to apply good protective skin cream frequently and minimize ongoing damage. Clean it using gentle means.
