Itchy Raised Red Spot On Wrist
HIV rash 2 weeks after? Red spot on hand not raised nor itchy, just red? How long does it last? No
What's the question?: You need to be seen by your personal physician, now. You're anxious and HIV and this won't get better until you're tested in the proper time-frame. Any new rash needs to be seen. If any Rx is new, discontinue if you can if the rash is new. I can't address the red spot on your hand and neither can anyone else. Show the same proactive spirit that brought you here and get seen now. ...Read more

My 4yr old has a small red spot on the inner side of the arm. Not raised, not itchy. Looks like a bruise but too small to be ?
Possible bite.: Depending on how long it has been there, it could still be a bruise, although if it is bright red, it sounds like a broken capillary (small blood vessel) or possibly spider bite.
