I have tiny flesh colored rashes on my forearms. They look like goosebumps. Also dry circular patches of dry skin. What could it be?
Doctor can examine: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter hydrocortisone 1% cream usually helps. Itchy bumps on many body parts might be an allergic reaction to something or from other causes. ...Read more

Eczema: What you are describing sounds like eczema or an allergic contact dermatitis to nickel.
