Can radiation from your phone mess with your skin?

I'm the type of person who wears clothes a lot that don't have any pockets and being a female, my first natural place to hold my phone is in my bra. I've been doing this for about 3 years now, and about 8-9 months ago, I noticed a dried-out looking spot on my skin where I normally kept my phone. I put some lotion on it thinking that my skin was just dried out and forgot about it. I've just started to notice again because there are now more spots, all of them smaller than the first one around the same area. They aren't dry and they don't itch or anything, they're just slightly darker than the rest of my skin and feel sort of leathery.I noticed this all happening about 3 months ago and have since made sure that I no longer put my phone in my bra and so far nothing has changed.
I know that cell phones give off radiation and I'm wondering if this is an effect of that, and if so, what can I do about it?

it's probably just a bit of a rash from the phone rubbing against your skin, try carrying around a purse for a few month's and see if it clears up, if not then go to the doctor just to be safe

Radiation in such a low contained form can certainly not hurt you in any way.

The amount of energy coming out of the phone is not significant enough to hurt your skin.

In a cell phone radiation is given off at such a low frequency it can cause no real harm to humans, as the energy released isn't high enough.

just the metal alone can't be good against your skin
