I know no one can give me medical advice over the internet but I am wondering if anyone has had a rash like this...

It is on my forearm, about 1 square inch, red, raised (whole area is raised), swollen and itchy. No hives or bumps. Doesn't seem like it is spreading.

WH and I hike together.

Could be ringworm; you can get it from your dog.

Aaaaah oh no. I totally ruled that out in my mind because I was like, "Naaah she doesn't sleep in bed and I never have skin to skin contact with her poop!" Crap. I guess a doctor's appointment is in the cards for me this week!

Might be excema.

If its chiggers, it will itch like you have never felt before.

Post a picture and I'll take a crack at it.


Ps. I give advice all the time. I can't "prescribe" anything without establishing a doctor/patient relationship.
