Why I breakout with welts on my forearm it itches too what can it be I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) it goes away sometimes but what can it be it comes and goes?
Many causes: If Benadryl (diphenhydramine) controlled it, then it is not contact dermatitis in the true sense. If the hives are confined to the forearms, then it may be from something you are using on your forearm especially when they don't involve the other exposed areas of the body (which would have suggested a link to sun exposure). Consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

There are many conditions that can cause a rash that appears to be inside or "under" the skin.

It could also be several different skin conditions, such as eczema, or could be the result of an infection.

If the hand swelling persists, becomes painful or develops redness, have a physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
