Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The burning and burning sensation that appears followed by blackish skin patches usually occurs as a result of mechanical injury, for example from being hit, crushed, or excessive friction. Often times, these injuries happen without realizing it, so that the sufferer thinks that their complaints appear suddenly when they are not. The blackish patches can appear due to blood clotting under the surface of the skin which is initially reddish in color, then becomes bluish, purple, then black over time.
Apart from mechanical injury, you may also experience complaints that arise due to other causes, for example:
Skin infections, for example due to herpes zoster, impetigo Contact dermatitis Vasculitis Phototoxic reactions, photoallergics Other skin inflammation and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, etc. You can check yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist to determine the cause. If deemed necessary, the doctor can also perform additional examinations, for example a biopsy, allergy test, and so on.
Here are the initial steps you can take:
Compress the sore arm with warm water Does not massage or exfoliate the stinging skin Diligent bath Avoid contact between the stinging skin and irritant or allergenic substances.
