Bumps on kids elbows

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on kids elbows


Avatar f tn My three year old has bumps on her elbows and hands now for over a week. its scaring me. The bumps are on her fingers, the back of her hand and both elbows. The bumps have turned a lil pinkish/redish now.
Avatar n tn I get these same type of red bumps on the tops and sides of my fingers, and on my elbows and kneecaps. I have noticed a correlation with the sun and when the bumps come. They sound the same as the bumps that are being described here- red, uncomfortable to the touch, dry. I had none of these over the winter. Now that there has been sun these last few beautiful days, some popped up again.
Avatar n tn I also notice very very very very small blister type bumps on my fingers that i have popped and released some sort of fluid.. the bumps on my penis/butt/thighs do not seem to have any fluid in them.. just very itchy and red.. I have had sexual intercourse about 3 to 4 months ago.. and have noticed these irritations about 2 months ago.. can masterbation cause it to get worse?.. i was told by a friend that it may be bed bugs?.. is that possible? (fleas? or no?..
Avatar n tn am 20 years old and recently statred having red little bumps all over my hands and feet. The next day the bumps spread on my butt cheeks and down my legs and on my elbows. Pretty much everywhere else you can think of!! They are not on my back or stomach or breasts, which is odd, but they spread all over within two days.. I have been doing some research and have gotten quite a few opinions and we came up with scabies. if you research scabies..
Avatar n tn Karl: When kids get little bumps all over, either on the skin or under it (or both), it's usually a virus of some sort. Often there are no other symptoms, such as cough, runny nose, and so on. If your son is taking no new medications, I would just wait it out for 3-4 more days. treat itch with cool compresses or itch lotions containing Benadryl or pramoxine. Taking oral Benadryl is more trouble than it's worth; kids may get hyper from it instead of less itchy.
Avatar n tn I'm 55 and have had the same problem for about 10 years. It is DEFINITELY stress related with me. First I start kind of "wringy" my hands, rubbing them, out of stress. Then the bumps start on the back of my thumbs. In the beginning I would just rub my thumbs raw, literally. Then the bumps started. Palms, between the fingers, concentrated between the thumb, pointer and index fingers. They sometimes spread up onto the back of my hands. The thumbs blister the most.
Avatar n tn my granddaughter is 5 years old and has had raised white bumps around her elbows and surrounding arm. They started with just a few and are spreading slowly. Also they itch. Could this be some kind of bug or mite under the skin?
Avatar n tn My neice has little bumps on her face and elbows thatlooklike ant bites or actual pimples. Are these milk bumps or are they something else. She is two and has not been bited by ants. She doesn't act like they bother her but it bothers me and her parents.
Avatar n tn My mom has been getting the same itchy bumps on her arms for almost a year now. Nothing seemed to work until I suggested she start taking an Antihistamine. This seems to help alot. She has no history of allergies, bug bites or what have you, but she does get cold sores and suffered a severe outbreak on her entire face due to contracting bacterial menangitis where her immune system was so impaired, the herpes ran rampant.
Avatar n tn Great Forum!!! I just turned 56 this week and developed these exact symptoms that you guys are all talking about. It started about 4 weeks ago. I was working in my yard and hit a yellow-jacket bee hive under a pile of old leaves and I got stung a few times. The worse reaction I had was from a sting on my right forearm. My arm swelled up pretty bad making me look a bit like Popeye.
Avatar f tn I have no idea what is going on with my face and I desperatly need help. For the past week there has been a patch of red, dry skin under my eye, on my upper cheek, and I have no clue what it is. At first I thought it was windburn, (my husband drives his jeep with the top off) so I began applying lotion all day and night. It burns and tingles a little whenever I apply it. The lotion isn't helping though.
Avatar f tn there is a spot on my nose that i've rubbed raw washing, trying to get these "things" out of my pores. these are not whiteheads, nor blackheads. these are clusters of white or fleshy hard and sticky plugs-- not filled with anything, but they stick straight out from the pores. They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin.
Avatar n tn It is a common childhood skin infection that causes small itchy bumps and blisters on the skin. The causative organism is a mite, which burrows into the skin. The lesions appear on the hands and feet (including elbows, wrists and between the finger-webs) and also genitals, naval and buttocks. Scabies is highly contagious and is usually transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. Other members of the family may also need treatment.
Avatar n tn I am having these small bumps that act like blisters that are appearing on my arms, hands, and chest that itch really bad. I also have welts that are appearing on my legs and hands that are itchy, and burn constantly. I cant stop the itching, and I end up scratching to where I bleed. I went to the doctor, there is no clue on what to do. He thought it was an allergic reaction and put me on a steroid to help, but it didn't, it just seems to of gotten worse.
Avatar n tn I had been using Canasa suppository for mild proctitis( had colonoscopy in 2008), and I just thought it was the leaking of the suppository that caused the itch. I used the cream for a year, on and off. About 2 months ago, I noticed that it was more bothersome. Saw the mild hemorrhoids,( 4 kids in 5 years) tried high fiber ( I'm not constipated, but I thought it would help), tried tux, baby wipes, sitz baths, waxing( thought maybe it was from the hair follicles)but nothing works ...
Avatar f tn So I'm cleaning, in the middle of checking on here and responding to posts, and I thought we could share a cleaning tip! I have a very unique one that I want to share, given to me by women who cleaned homes for a living. 1). Use NEWSPAPER, instead of a cloth or paper towel, to clean glass and windows, with your window cleaner (Windex or whatever). It will not leave streaks or little pieces of paper towel fuzz on the glass. PLUS you're recycling the newspaper by putting it to great use.
Avatar f tn As long as you don't kiss your kids on the mouth or on their boo boos, or touch their mucous membranes or wounds directly after touching your cold sores, you will not be transferring your HSV to them. There is also no documentation whatsoever of HSV being transmitted via inanimate objects. I hope this helps!
363110 tn?1340924019 when I tan because the spots do not tan along with the rest of my face so they become more noticeable. They are not bumps and feels like the rest of the skin on my face except it seems to be more dry. What do I do to cure this? Please help!! My dad who is a pediatrician has suggested that they may be caused by formerly having exema in those spots.
Avatar f tn and the rash that comes on my skin when I scratch is little teeny tiny white bubbles in small patches mostly on my wrist(upper side) my elbows and ankles. The itching hasn't spread anywhere else.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 27 years old straight male, i have never done any kind of drugs in my life, about 21 days ago i had unprotected sex with a girl who i dated for about 3 weeks she has two kids one about 8 and the other one 10, the thought of HIV had never crossed my mind until a week later when i started reading about the subject, now i am so terrified that i could had contracted HIV from this girl, i have not had any symptoms that are even near close to what i have read online but just the thought of
744686 tn?1232765828 consist of her completely unable to move for a week or more. She gets several bumps on her knees and elbows (except these never secrete anything, they just fade away after some time.) She's been prescribed everything from Prednizone to Valium for the pain. Could this be related? Like I said, I was never too concerned about the likelihood of an STD, but I always made sure to protect myself and everyone I've been with. However, just recently I noticed some small red bumps on my fiance's penis.
Avatar m tn It than spread to my legs, but they were single displaced red bumps. The stuff on neck and forearms where and are nasty. At times, very bright red, other times dark purple like. No itch, just ruff sand paper like feeling, and it was as symmetric as can be. That night I got the rash I had some night sweats. Next night, bad night sweats, stiff neck, and the joints in one of my hands really hurt bad.
Avatar n tn I Did get my first 2 blisters in the boxer shots area and the other one on my face. The start out as red bumps itch. The other one I noticed today is on the back of my wrist.
Avatar n tn I just started last night to notice these red bumps developing on my body. They are on my back,stomach, thighs, breasts, my arms( close to my arm pits) even on my butt well you get the picture. I am having trouble sleeping and i am very uncomfortable. I have not changed anything in my daily life (food, detergent, etc....) I have not officially taken a pregnancy test yet to see if it is related to that. I just stumbled across this forum in my search to understand what is going on with me.
529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
Avatar f tn Wow. Still going on. I have this too, but it's just on my legs. The bumps are large and red, sometimes expand, like hives. Only they don't spread across my skin like hives do. Then, like you said, a week or so later they reduce in size and get redder in color. I only get them overnight. I know they aren't bed bugs because I don't see any and they are very spread out on my skin. I found out lying on the carpet of my friend's place gave me a lot of bumps.
Avatar n tn I had it too, bumps & itching, from eyebrows to elbows, to knees, to ears, to scalp...started early in tx and lasted till about the 4th-5th month. Has been much better. Used a generic Kenalog cream, benadryl pills for itching, also benadryl gel helped. Okay kids, I tried again to update my website...and I just cant get some of the links to work!
Avatar m tn It always starts on my forearms closer to my wrist and I will have erruptions on the front of my legs and on my chest. It is usually just a few bumps in each area but it is extremely itchy. I never have it on my head, face, neck or genital areas. Topical Cortizone has not helped nor has a week of steriod pills. Could I be allergic to some kind of tree pollen?? It seems to start once the snow clears (I live in New England) and the temp goes over 50 degrees.
Avatar f tn What does Eczema look like? Ava's face was broken out with red bumps, it was on her face, and on her head, and a couple spots on her arms but those were not clustered. Now her face is dry, and sometimes the little bumps resurface, but not all of them look like a pimple... my pedi called it and "insignificant" rash that babies sometimes get. Does this sound like eczema?
