    It looks like eczema,  is it itchy?

    Ask your GP or a Pharmacist.  It looks very dry, so an emollient or any hand cream would help.  Have a look at the following page

    Hope this helps.

    Hi there. Could be hives/urticaria. I had this in 2012 for a few months on much of my body. It happened slowly and was itchy, but a prescribed antihistamine got rid of it for me. Not had it since. However, get it checked by your Dr. in case it's not this.

    It seems that you are going to take the good advice you have been given and are going to make an appointment to see your doctor. I guess that the condition is likely to be relatively trivial and will respond to a topical treatment. Don't let your doctor fob you off with faux reassurance and no treatment. It could be labelled as dermatitis and it might be caused by a reaction to cleaning materials for example. Consider making a list of the products you come in contact with as this might offer some clues as to the causes of the condition.

    Like jon84622 below, I would like to know what happened -- I, too, have a red spot in almost exactly the same place as yours, and it looks very similar to the picture you posted.
