Ive had this rash on the back of my arm since i was in year 5. It's never faded, but i've never thought of having treatment or seeing anybody about it. It looks a lot like a heat rash, small lumps/spots and red in colour, although it's never been itchy. Once i got really badly sunburnt on the backs of my arms, but one of my arms has never healed, are my skins cells damaged forever? I get it mostly once ive come into the hot from outside. Im now starting to worry what it actually is, and treatments to get rid of it for this summer. I feel really insecure with it, and would appreciate advice anybody posts, thanks :)
