I posted a message the other day (yesterday?) about this rash I have. My mother's convinced that it's scabies and the symptoms seem to match (The article I read on here about it said the rash would look like a bunch of little pimples grouped together, which it did.) The thing is the fact that the rash is on the inside of my forearm, right in the open, and the article said that scabies prefer warm/covered locations like between the fingers, on the beltline, etc. I only have the one rash on my forearm. Thoughts?

You'll need to see your doctor for a diagnosis ... Even if we were doctors (we're not), we can't see you, and it's too hard to go by descriptions online.

Try to get to the doctors as soon as you can, before it disappears again!
