Help!(pics)What is this awful irritation?!

Okay, so, prior to seeing my 'family doctor' for the first time again in ages, I thought that this was eczema, as I recall my childhood pediatrician giving me this diagnosis years ago, as I have had this rash/irritation problem since I was very young.

[B]However[/B] my dr said that it was not what looks to be eczema, and recommended that I see a dermatologist (who's soonest avb. is 3 weeks from now) to properly diagnose what it truly is I guess? It is always DISTINCTLY in the area of/surrounding both of the creases in my forearms.

However, for whatever reason as of late it has become far worse then usual, and has even began to develop more spots further down my forearm as well. In the meantime (3 weeks apparently) I'm curious as to what you all think that it may be, also, what would be good in the mean time for the awful itching and overall irritation?

[B]Thanks! [/B] pictures:
