In brief: Work

If you are wearing short sleeves it could be an exposure to work related chemicals.
Patch testing can help what is causing the allergy.

In brief: Rash

If the arms are covered, it could be the clothing fabric, soaps, detergents, or any lotion you are placing only on this region.
If it is sun-exposed, it could be photoallergic dermatitis (aka reaction to the sun).
