Hello and thank you for the question.I am Dr. Sohaib, a practicing Board Certified Consultant with over 15 years of experience and I will do my best to help you today.Let me review your question for a minute and I will get back to you.
Since how long do you have this?
Is it itchy?
Similar marks on other wrist or arms or legs?
Any treatment you have taken so far?
Most likely this is contact dermatitis; you need to identify the trigger. It can be your watch, undergarments, soaps, or any other irritants.
Another possibility is of an insect bite, which has failed to healed completely due to allergic reaction causing itching and recurrent itching/irritation causes a continuous inflammation of the affected area.
For the time being, try 1% hydrocortisone cream and see how you respond to it in next few days.
The itching should improve first of all. And then the rash will slowly disappear. Try to avoid any allergens (perfumes, soaps or chemicals).
If it does not help, then you need to see a dermatologist for clinical exam and skin biopsy.
I am optimistic that it will get better soon.
Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health.
