Many thanks

Since how long do you have this?

Is it itchy?

Any discharge?

Similar marks on other wrist or arms or legs?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have had this for about 2 months or so, it is itchy occasionally and I haven’t noticed any discharge. I have one small red bump near my other wrist

Any treatment you have taken so far?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing for it 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.

Thanks very much for your help and above Dr!

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.
