Allergy or infection: A wrist rash that is itchy and sometimes oozes moisture or liquid may be an infection (such as bacteria or herpes) or may be a significant allergy (such as to a bracelet or watchband). A doctor may want to look at the rash a few times to figure things out. It helps to see the rash when it starts, when it is at its worse, and after it has resolved.

See to ID: This rash would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.
