Hi all,
do any of you get rashes on your forearm?  Looks like tiny pimples and are a bit itchy.  Do they last long?  hours, days?

Hi Jdeet . . . I do get rashes on the back of my hands from the sun (this rash is itchy). It will also cause a dusky rash on my forearms which is not itchy. This can last from a day to months. Watch the sun, it can really cause trouble. I cover ALL summer, even in the car.

I get horrible itchy rashes on my forearms and backs of hands from the sun. Steroid creams have helped but as Rosie said; stay out of the sun. for me, it is the one known thing that causes me to flare bad.

Oh - and they can last a few days up to several weeks. If I catch it early, it only lasts a few days.
