Hey guys, I was wondering what a good herb would be for rashes. I recently developed one on my arm. It looks like a bunch of red bumps sitting together in an area of 4 or 5 square inches. I'd estimate there to be forty or fifty red bumps.

Sounds like a reaction to something that touched you, or a bug bite (some bugs bite over and over. Does it itch? Try Benedryl (or store brand) to stop the hystamines. If this doesn't work, try cleansing it with mild soap and water, then try light virgin olive oil to cover it from the air, and to soothe it. Other than that, don't scratch, as it could spread it. If it still bothers you, or other symptoms appear, go to a doctor to learn what to do. It could be so many things, that its hard to tell you what will help. If it hurts, like a burning sensation, worse case could be shingles. If it were me, I would wash it and try the oil. Hope this helps. Blessed Be...
