Flat, white rash
I have developed over the past month or two an itchy rash on the insides of my forearms and legs.  Unlike most skin rashes, it appears as white, circular, barely raised areas on the skin about the size of a pencil eraser.  I have already eliminated fragrances from as many products as possible (lotions, laundry detergents, etc.) and there is nothing new in my lifestyle or diet.  Have you seen this before and do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,

Judie

Hard to say.  It may be a form of eczema, which usually does not follow lifestyle changes but may produce lightening of affected skin.  Try using over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone plus an itch lotion like Sarna or Benadryl.  If those don't help, visit a dermatologist.

Best.
