There is not easy fix, but I would recommend sunscreens, protective clothing, and do your best to avoid trauma to those areas. I would recommend you see a dermatologist who can further evaluate you to confirm the diagnosis and be sure that is the correct diagnosis. I hope that helps.

If you mean the side of the forearm on the same side as the little finger, consider ulnar nerve. If you mean the thumb side or palm side, consider median nerve (carpal tunnel).
