Sores on one arm

I developed sores on one of my arms and it's been going on for about 3 weeks now. I'm not even aware of how they start out but when I scratch they bleed and seems like they never want to heal. I've tried peroxide, neosporin, and now soak tissue with Sea Breeze (astringent) and leave it on the area where the sores are for 10-15 minutes. It seems to be spreading around my arm, but so far only below the elbow. I guess it's time to go to the doc because it's not getting better. Any ideas on what this could be or what else I could try?
Thanks

Re: Sores on one arm

I would recommend you see a Dr without delay. Sores that are spreading are probably some kind of infection, such as impetigo or staph infection. MRSA infections are hard to eliminate and getting more common. It is staph that is resistant to certain antibiotics. Of course, it could be contact dermatitis like poison ivy or any kind of derm condition, but someone needs to look at it that will know what it is and treat it.
