I have hot feeling itchy rash type bumps on my elbows and knees and when I take that 1% hydocortisone cream it goes away, but when I stop it comes back in same place. It most inflames at night and and in the morning or when my skin gets greasy.
I am a 37 year old male, and for the last 5 years or so, I have had a skin condition. For a short time in the Spring and Fall, I get a rash on the inside of my elbows and behind my knees. If I can manage to not scratch it, it basically goes away in that area. But scratching it makes it worse. After a couple weeks, it goes away. By searching the web, I have found a couple conditions that it could be, but I was hoping someone with some expertise could narrow it down.
My son had tiny raised bumps on knees, elbows; knuckles of hands when he was about 3 years old....these things just appeared suddenly and were diagnosed as flat warts by a dermatologist back then. I have looked online now and see that they were probably not flat warts as they look very different from any pics online of flat warts. I was reading where another lady says her child has the same thing and she is wondering what it is.
However, she has now developed thick skin lumps - numerous of them on her knees and now elbows. The GP said it was due to her crawling around on carpet. However, she appears to have smaller versions of these lumps on her entire body. Also on the backs of her legs she appears to have an "allergy" looking rash. The GP had given her hydrocortisone, and told to hydrate... but I am conscious that its something sinister...
Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of eczema needs to be ruled out. It is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Allergic reaction can occur to strong soaps, Solvents, chemicals, certain foods, food additives, plants, metals, cosmetics, even urine and faeces of some animals (dust mites).
Hello, about a year ago I developed small itchy bumps on my butt near the opening of my vagina. Since then the rash of itchy bumps has spread to the the fronts and backs of my knees & elbows, my hips, my inner thighs, and my stomach. The itching comes and goes and is most pronounced when I remove my clothing. These patches of itchy skin are not at all painful. They also do not blister. I scratch them but it only provides a brief period of relief.
hi, I have small white bumps on my elbows and knees. They appeared on my elbows and knees around a month ago but I never gave them much bother. They do not itch nor are they in huge groups/clusters (about 4 bumps on my elbow and 6 on my knee so it doesn't really seem like a rash (they are only on my left knee and left elbow (not sure if that matters)). They are white at the raised bump and slightly red around the edges (looks similar to pimples).
I also noticed smaller bumps on her elbows. Is this a rash or a virus. At first i thought it was warts, but would warts be on all four elbows and knees? So far its been 5 days and i did start to apply A+D original Ointment. She also uses TRIAMCINOLONE 0.0025% cream for Vitiligo which she has around the pelvic area. we have been using this for about two weeks. Could this be a reaction from the cream? I did make an appointment to see her DR.
This morning I noticed that she has lumpy red bumps all over both knees and both elbows. They are reddish and do NOT itch or hurt. There are probably 50 to 100 bumps in all, of varying sizes. They do not look like the molluscum she has had in the past. Any guesses as to what they are and/or what we should do for them? I really don't want to take her in again if it is just more molluscum.
my 9 year old has a skin rash on his inner thighs and insides of knees and elbows; what is most likely the problem and how do I treat it?
Since August of 2010 my knees elbows and butt would itch so bad it made welts. The welts would go away quickly unless I was scratching. It also seems the itching is at its worst if I'm in hot water, or my butt is hot from sitting or laying. Been back and forth to the derm (I have no insurance) and they still have no answers. I've been treated for scabies which it wasn't, was giving creams to use with no luck, even the over the counter stuff does not work.
After looking at sites that offer a possibility of juvenile arthritis I am a bit rattled. He has seen his pediatrician during a flare up and she was not sure what this could be. There does not appear to be any preceding fever, no swelling, no itching. He does not even notice these varied sized pink bumps. The bumps do not blister, they just shrink and go away to different degrees. They occur most often on knees an elbows and occasionally on finger joints.
I've been getting a rash on my finger joints, elbows, and knees since I was 6 or 7 years old. It just flared up again for no apparent reason. When it is really bad, like it is now, it is both itchy and painful at the same time, and my skin feels tight and hurts when I bend my fingers. The rash looks like many small bumps of different sizes, not everywhere on my hands, just on the knuckles and joints of the back of my hand.
Hi, I'm not sure if this is Anaphylaxis, but several years ago I went through a phase of waking up and the skin on my knees and elbows was red and swollen- the joints themselves were fine, but the skin felt hot and itchy like bad sunburn. The feeling would get worse, then calm through the day. After a few weeks my ears also began turn red and hot, and later the skin around my mouth also turned red, in quite a clear cut blotchy way.
The crotch area, behind knees, front of elbows, back, neck, head, wrists. Can you break out in a rash like this a week and 1/2 after starting this Medication?
I have had a extremely itchy rash mostly on my torso (below my breasts, around my waist, armpits, inside of my elbows, behind my knees, etc.) for a few weeks now. There is no rash on my legs. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he said it was due to detergent. I took all of the steroids (10mg) he prescribed and it subsided. Today, it is back and very itchy! What should I do next? Is there something I can try OTC to get rid of this? I tried Cortizone creams, etc.
It then spreads to my face, neck, shoulders, elbows, knees and ankles. I literally feel like I have been sunburned and the skin is bright red, tingles and burns. The burning sensation in my face gets worse when I bend over. This usually lasts an hour or less but leaves me feeling tired and sleepy. It has happened twice in less than 7 days and in the past three months about 1 or 2 episodes a month. Other symptoms I have are night and day hot flashes, but not with the burning sensations...
Both of these are unusual for me because I've always had brown ones of normal consistency. I also have a skin rash for a few months on my hands (knuckles, joints), which looks like eczema. The skin rash has not been getting worse on its own, but it refuses to clear. I've also had cough for a long time, which is gone now. I had a chest X-ray done and nothing was found. I was on ciprofloxacin for a week for a urinary tract infection when this all started happening.
Hello, Back in February of 2008, I developed a skin rash behind my knees and on my right side of my rib cage. This rash was very unsightly and itchy. I would wake up during the night itching. I tried hydrocortisone cream, but it did not clear up the rash. The rash then spread to the inside of my elbows, along my waistline, around my navel, on my shins, and my genitals. Never was there a rash on my hands, fingers, or feet. I went to a dermatologist, but I do not have medical insurance.
Lesions are found all over the body and may spread all over the body. The elbows, knees, palms, scalp, and soles of the feet are most commonly the original sites of involvement, and the scaly areas eventually take on a wart-like appearance.
The redness is most often seen on the elbows, knees, and trunk, but can appear anywhere on the body. The skin patches or dots may be: pink-red in color , dry and covered with silver, flaky skin and raised. Eczema , on the other hand, is a form of dermatitis or inflammation of the epidermis.It may present with redness, skin edema, itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding.
Hi, Psoriasis is generally a disease of the skin and leads to development of patches of well defined scaly, flaky areas on the skin. Areas involved usually are knees, elbows, shin and extensor portions of the body. There are many modalities of treatments available including, steroids and other local applications, PUVA and other phototherapies.
My daughter is 5 years old and for the past 3 years these same rashes appear on the back of her legs behind the knees and in front of the elbows where her arm bends together. And they always come back on both sides (L/R) of her body. These rashes come and go. At first we thought it was food allergy and when we would take her off of milk/dairy the rashes would go away for a while. Then when they came back we would take her off of wheat, thinking it might be a food allergy.
my skin round the knees itches so bad and when i scratch a rash presents itself. If i ignore the area I will be fine for a while. It is so bad and it seems to be increasing in area every day. What could this be?
red, raised rash on knees, elbows, and hands. I think she has mono also... what should we do, see a dr? or ride it out? the mono symtems are almost gone, she still coughs a little and has little energy.
