Check with the doctor before you do anything. If it hurts or burns, put ice on it. But make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible to make sure it isn't serious.

Well, if it is red and it hurts, it might be a sunburn. A bad one. Put tons of aloe on it and stay indoors. But if it showed up that quickly, one word: Doctor.

Edit: Arm on your skin? hands on my feet!

missy miss
its either egzyma or 3rd degree sunburn

Goose Bumps - caused by a chill due to temperature or fear
Allergic Reaction - you may be allergic to grass or gloves that you were wearing
Eczema - causes bumps and rashes on skin "feels very itchy"

Other Possibilities:
Spicy Food came in contact with your skin
Insect Repellent came in contact with your skin
You used a new type of lotion on your skin
Your skin came in contact with a new substance
Your skin came in contact with cleaning solution
Your skin came in contact with gasoline by back splash when filling the mower with gas

To Do:

Chemical Contact : cleaning solution, gasoline, insect repellent:
Don't cover the irritated skin with any ointment because it may be a chemical burn, a "light chemical burn" instead take white vinegar and pour onto irritated skin. Let it dry and don't wash off the stinky vinegar.

If you experience burning and itching use raw potato and lightly pat the thin pieces of raw potato on skin

Aloe will cause a burning sensation
Lotion & Ointment will make burning worse
Powder will cause the skin to become more inflamed

the arm on your skin? did u do that on purpose?

The arm on your skin? Don't you mean the skin on your arm?

Anyways, it sounds to me like you have got yourself a sunburn!


that sounds like eczema.

were you mowing the lawn whae it was hot cause when your hands sweat and they rub agenst each other then it is a rash that is what happend to me

It sounds like contact dermatitis.

Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating substance.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors
Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating or allergy-causing substance (irritant or allergen). Reactions may vary in the same person over time. A history of any type of allergies increases the risk for this condition.

Irritant dermatitis, the most common type of contact dermatitis, involves inflammation resulting from contact with acids, alkaline materials such as soaps and detergents, solvents, or other chemicals. The reaction usually resembles a burn.

Allergic contact dermatitis, the second most common type of contact dermatitis, is caused by exposure to a substance or material to which you have become extra sensitive or allergic. The allergic reaction is often delayed, with the rash appearing 24 - 48 hours after exposure. The skin inflammation varies from mild irritation and redness to open sores, depending on the type of irritant, the body part affected, and your sensitivity.

Common allergens associated with contact dermatitis include:

Poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac
Other plants
Nickel or other metals
Antibiotics, especially those applied to the surface of the skin (topical)
Topical anesthetics
Other medications
Fabrics and clothing
Fragrances, perfumes
Other chemicals and substances
Contact dermatitis may involve a reaction to a substance that you are exposed to, or use repeatedly. Although there may be no initial reaction, regular use (for example, nail polish remover, preservatives in contact lens solutions, or repeated contact with metals in earring posts and the metal backs of watches) can eventually cause cause sensitivity and reaction to the product.

Some products cause a reaction only when they contact the skin and are exposed to sunlight (photosensitivity). These include shaving lotions, sunscreens, sulfa ointments, some perfumes, coal tar products, and oil from the skin of a lime. A few airborne allergens, such as ragweed or insecticide spray, can cause contact dermatitis.

Itching (pruritus) of the skin in exposed areas
Skin redness or inflammation in the exposed area
Tenderness of the skin in the exposed area
Localized swelling of the skin
Warmth of the exposed area (may occur)
Skin lesion or rash at the site of exposure
Lesions of any type: redness, rash, papules (pimple-like), vesicles, and bullae (blisters)
May involve oozing, draining, or crusting
May become scaly, raw, or thickened

Treatment - How you can fix it.

Initial treatment includes thorough washing with lots of water to remove any trace of the irritant that may remain on the skin. You should avoid further exposure to known irritants or allergens.

In some cases, the best treatment is to do nothing to the area.

Corticosteroid skin creams or ointments may reduce inflammation. Carefully follow the instructions when using these creams, because overuse, even of low-strength over-the-counter products, may cause a troublesome skin condition. In severe cases, systemic corticosteroids may be needed to reduce inflammation. These are usually tapered gradually over about 12 days to prevent recurrence of the rash. In addition to or instead of corticosteroid skin treatment, your doctor may prescribe tacrolimus ointment or pimecrolimus cream.

Wet dressings and soothing anti-itch (antipruritic) or drying lotions may be recommended to reduce other symptoms. Calamine lotion.

just sounds like a rash. put some anti itch cream or lotion on it. if it doesnt go away get someone to look at it.
