I've got some kind of rash on the palm of my right hand, and it's got me pretty confused. Thoughts?
Here's a picture

, though it doesn't photograph very well. I also noticed a patch of it on the top of my right foot
now. It itches sometimes, and is pretty uncomfortable on my hand, like the skin feels tight.
My mother threw out "bed bugs?" and now I'm terrified. I looked up pictures of bed bug bites, and they seem more like mosquito bites, this is more like a rash. I think it might be some kind of allergic reaction to soap (I switched to a new bar of soap a couple weeks ago), but I first noticed this rash last Friday evening.
If I go to the doctor, she'll probably just tell me to put hydro cortisone cream on it, which I'm doing. I can handle it if it's just a rash or allergic reaction (though I don't know what from), it's the possibility of it being freakin' bed bugs that doesn't make me feel to great. Any thoughts on that? Thanks!
