In brief: Probably not

Normal healthy people do not have yellow spots on the arms.
Skin rashes are difficult to describe with words. A rash that is unusual (such as yellow spots), lasts a long time, or keeps recurring needs to be examined by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist (skin doctor). The doctor can start treatment, or he can do additional testing if the diagnosis is uncertain.
