Allergic reaction, maybe, on skin?

A couple of weeks ago I noticed there strange scratches on my skin I don't recall getting. Within a week they had started to look like burn marks, kind of blistered and peeling. Then about a week later they had turn brown like scars and all the small similarly colored little splotches began appearing all over my right hand and wrist, they almost look like a chemical burns but I haven't been around anything of the sort. I think they're an allergic reaction maybe?

From your description, these “scratches” could be allergic (most commonly from direct contact with an allergic substance) or infectious or neither one.  I suggest that you give careful consideration to what new substances have recently come in contact with your skin;  these could range from animal scratches or skin contact, chemicals or hand creams, or even from new gloves.  You may have to see your doctor to get a specific diagnosis.

Good luck.
