Bothersome: Does it itch, is it bubbly , or ooze? Does it hurt? Are you left handed? Is it bumpy raised and red? Really not enough info to answer you but it is in the distribution where you would grab something and possibly touched as irritant . If that is what it is, try Benadryl cream or an over the counter Hydrocortisone . If it does not clear see your doctor who can see it with real eyes for proper dxrx. ...Read more
