Avatar f tn Hi. I haven't been online in awhile. I just started a roche trial last week. Everything has been going pretty well other than a few side effects. I'm curious if anyone has ever had painful red bumps on their hands and elbows. I've had these before from time to time, but it's usually just one or two bumps that go away in a couple of weeks. I've always associated it with dry skin. This time I have a lot of bumps and they're spreading all over my hands and elbows.
Avatar f tn Does your skin tend towards oily or dry? Black skin is usually more resistant to wrinkles as it ages than white skin, but other than that, the color matters less than the oily/dry question in terms of treatment (except about the elbows, where it is a good idea to exfoliate often if the skin tends to look "ashy" there). If your skin tends towards oily, you can use stronger and more astringent soaps (made for the face) and if it breaks out, some of the vitamin A-based products.
Avatar f tn My elbows are dry but no burning or anything like that. You can always try Vaseline.
Avatar f tn He tends to rest on his elbows alot and it sounds like contact dermetitis. The extra weight on the elbows tends to dry the skin more and also different detergents and materials can also irritate the skin. Stay with just cotton clothing and hydrocotisone. I know its a habit, but tell her not to rest on the elbows while listening in school. My son does that to stay focused.
Avatar m tn Hey, can anyone help me for about a week or so now i've had dry, scaly, sore, itchy skin on both my elbows, when I do itch it, it bleeds a small bit. It's getting quite painful and annoying. Any help or advice would be great.
Avatar f tn I usually sit on the floor with crossed legs or on a chair and eitherway my elbows are resting directly on these areas where the dry spots appeared so I first thought they were regular marks left by the weight from my elbows. But when I looked closer, it's actually a dry spot. Since the only alarming symptom for me is how it appears to be growing and spreading, I figured I could wait a bit longer until I go have it checked by a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn I have dry flaky skin patches on my hands, knees, elbows and on my ankles. My fingers are wrinkley like I’ve been in the water too long. Not itchy at all and I’m definitely not dehydrated. What could this be ?
Avatar f tn I've noticed my elbows have been extremely dry and some dry patches on my skin that's itchy...
Avatar n tn Yes cold weather can make the elbows dry red chaffed and itchy too. Apply a good moisturizer sever times a day. Glycerin mixed with rose water too helps. If this does not help, consult a skin specialist for it could also be due to eczema, dermatitis or fungal infection. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar f tn I have some sort of rash on the inside of my elbows -.- no idea what it is and I'm praying it goes away after baby is born.

Avatar f tn I am only 7wks and I have very itchy elbows and knees. They aren't dry. There are also welt like bumps that look like a mosquito bite but I wasn't bitten. Anybody else experience this so early and if so, what helps? I've tried ice, lotion, calamine etc. nothing is coming close to helping. The books say it will subside after childbirth but 8 more months of this sounds crazy! Please help.
Avatar n tn is it dry skin? if so Vaseline works really well on little kids with it..after a bath is the best time.
Avatar m tn try l-lysine
Avatar f tn I have developed patches on my skin on my ankle bones they have become dry and scaly which peal and becomes raw and irritated at time if I scratch it.
Avatar f tn I've had this red rash for as long as I can remember. Seems to come around twice a year. Inside of elbows, bra line, and armpits. Itches. Skin all flakes off eventually and then it's fine for awhile. Seen several doctors, never been diagnosed.
Avatar n tn The itchiness is all over my legs and ankles and up on the insides of my legs as well. Also, the skin on my elbows is so cracked and dry it hurts to touch. I have tried several lotions several times a day and cannot get any moisture in. This dryness is on my forehead as well, but is not as bad, my forehead flakes when I rub it. My father has eczema, I wasn't sure if there was any kind of inheritance that could be involved.

Avatar m tn I also have slightly distinguishable vertical ridges on my finger nails and hair loss combined with dry brittle looking hair and occasionally dry itchy elbows. Upon these symptoms I self diagnosed my condition to be a lack of zinc in my diet, however upon doing a zinc test the results alleviated that prognosis. I am stuck, I really need some answers, my condition is starting to affect my self confidence. Please help.
Avatar m tn I have very dry skin around the area of my butthole. It is so dry, that it bleeds on occasion and itches like crazy. I have gone to the Dr. before and have been prescribed creams and pills etc, but no luck. I have taken an over the counter liquid for pinworms (I know, gross) but that did not work either. Does anyone else have this issue and what have you done to clear it up? It is mainly during the evening and night time hours when I am asleep that it happens the worst. HELP!
Avatar n tn 1. Started with incredibly dry elbows, worse than has ever happened. Itching soon follows, along with red bumps, and since then I've started moisturizing. The thick sections of dead skin have peeled away and my elbows are fine, save for still itching sometimes, and the bumpy texture isn't completely gone. 2. A weird itch/bug bite on my index finger appears around the same time. The skin has little dabs of red/brown, and is stiff.
