Does Anybody Recognize This Rash? PIC INCLUDED * UPDATE IN RED AS REQUESTED*

I developed this red, slightly itchy rash on the back side of my forearm a couple of days ago. Does anybody know what it might be? Dog was just groomed yesterday and no fleas. No new products. Checking for bedbugs now and hoping not. Any possibilities I've forgotten? I was just at the doctor last week and hate to have to go again this soon, especially for somthing so minor if I can treat it at home.

Well, I still have no idea what caused the rash. My best guess is something grabbed hold while I was weeding (someone said if it was that it would be all over, but I wasn't weedng in a big garden, just in patio pots). I am also allergic to fiberglass and came into contact with it just before this rash appeared. In any case, I applied Corisone 3 times over 2 days and it is now completely gone. Thanks to all who scared me to death with the scabies diagnosis!...LOL

It does kind of look like bedbug bites. How about chicken pox? LOL

Could be ezcema. I have horrible ezcema and every time I change doctors they always misdiagnose me with scabies.

Has it spread? Or is it isolated to that one spot?

I suppose anything is possible, but I've never has eczema before. My brother did as a kid and I really don't think this is what his looked like.

Isolated. It's less than 20 little bumps.

That's what I was going to say.

OP I can't tell very well from the pic. But does it look like some of it is in a straight line?
