Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash elbows knees


Avatar n tn I feel that it is aggravated by the humidity and heat. The red itchy bumps are only on my knuckles finger joints elbows and knees. Please let me know how to calm the itching/ inflammation and what you think it is.
1654177 tn?1319838494 They also had me use hydrocortisone cream and have me moisturizing with Aveeno twice a day (morning and night). I get the rash on my legs, knees and elbows. Doing what they recommended has kept it under control. The Aveeno also helps with the injection "burns" that I get with the Interferon. Definitely ask your doctor for help as we all need as little stress as possible during tx and really don't need to feel itchy and sore.
Avatar f tn The first xyzal, this worked fantastic in reducing the redness in my face/neck, but then I began getting a rash on my elbows and knees. This seemed like an allergic reaction so I stopped. Went back to benadryl, the rashes on my elbows and knees went away but my face got inflamed. So 2 days later I tried 180mg Allegra, and the same thing happened! My face/neck calmed down but the rashes on my elbows knees came. Do xyzal and allegra have a similar ingredient, or what could this be?
Avatar n tn I have an itchy red rash over most of my body including arms, legs, genital area, buttocks, and even my head (can't see it, just feel it). None on my hands or feet, underarms or breasts. Started on my right forearm in a small patch around a surgical site a few weeks ago, but just recently started to itch and now appears to be spreading. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn 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.

2199483 tn?1338594436 It happens in response to allergens. Eczema can affect neck, knees, and elbows and causes oozing, bleeding blisters and thick patches caused by climate, allergens and illness.Psoraisis is characterized with the presence of thick red itchy plaques with white scales on the scalp, elbows, knees, lower back. The cause is possibly hereditary. These are a few possibilities based on the information provided by you. It is very difficult to confirm anything without external examination.
Avatar m tn Hi, I've had what looks like the same thing for the last few days. Itchy spots on hands, knees and elbows. I saw the Dr today, who advised it's probably result of a viral infection, which will clear up by itself after a week or two. For the itching, she prescribed Telfast antihistamine as my over the counter Clarityn wasn't enough. I hope this helps others!
Avatar m tn ve had all these same spots for over 48 hours and got a few new ones this morning. The spots are on both elbows, both knees, around my eyes (to a lesser degree), on my right hand, and around and under my hairline. The picture shows the worst of the rash, on my right elbow.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy bumps on my outer elbows for several years. They come and go, usually lasting up to a week before disappearing for a while. I don't really know what is causing them. This time I also got some on my knees. But I don't have rash anywhere else. The bumps are small and there are quite a lot of them. My skin is not red or scaly. The bumps are the same colour as my skin normally is. Clear liquid comes out from the bumps when they break.
Avatar f tn As soon as the pain seemed to be fading away I broke out in a rash on my elbows, hands, fingers, knees and the tops of my feet. The rash was itchy and bumpy. I went to the doctor and neither the dermatologist nor allergist knew what it was, so they had it biopsied. The rash and joint pain had seems to all be going away except two nights ago I broke out in a random fever again of 103 that lasted throughout the night. The joint pain has returned as well as the rash.
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 f tn Hello, so i was examindes with molluscum contagiosum about a month ago and it is clearing up nicely it was in my groin area but have now developed two new skin conditions one has apeard on my hand, elbows and knees the other on my penis.On my penis i have flaky dry skin with a tiny rash that doesn't hurt or itch the other one was really itchy blistery like bumps that have now almost cleard up with the help of a creme named Fucicort that was prescribed to me.
Avatar m tn Hi, I started having a itch rash on knees and elbows kind of a few heat spots that was very itchy. This was 2 weeks ago and has know on my arms legs belly and penis head as we'll as my back. The rash ain't intense but spread out. Went walk in centre and they just advised it's dermatitis but obviously isn't. I also have a 1 or 2 of these heat spots on feet and hands.
482830 tn?1247020837 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.
Avatar f tn But the others, my doctor cannot identify. The back of my hands, my feet (esp pinky toes), knees and elbows have a non itchy , red rash. The ones on my pinkie toes hurt because I have to wear shoes, but I really can't feel the rest of them. Benedryl doesn't do anything except ease the itching of the injection site rashes. I really don'ot want to get shuffled from specialist to specialist , only to be told...uh we don't know--which is usually the case.
Avatar n tn I have the exact same thing. Itchy bumps (just like insect bites) on my elbows (and sometimes knees) over about 2 months they have intermittently appeared then disappeared on their own. I have also had intermittent skin coloured bumps, smaller than those on my elbows, along the sides, and on the joints, of my fingers. They don't itch or hurt, and eventuallu fade. The bumps on my elbows and knees are not a rash, they're definite bumps. Weird.
Avatar n tn I guess that is usually what happens to me when I go to the doctor, I am always a mystery. I get bumps on my knuckles, elbows and sometimes my knees or wrists. It have just learned to live with it and generally doesn't bother me to much but I have always wondered why just my joints. Let me know if you ever find anything out. Thanks, ~Dan This discussion is related to <a href=''>Rash on finger joints and elbows</a>.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I hurt all the time. My fingers, wrists, elbows, lower back, knees, ankles. Random pain all over not in my joints. Occasionally I'll get a rash below my knees and from my elbows to my hands. It's not a raised rash, but it looks kind of like rust. Like you can see a bunch of tiny blood vessels below the skin. It does not itch and isn't painful. Sed rate westergren was 23 and my c reactive protein quant was 14. Any advice is appreciated.
Avatar n tn Out of nowhere, yesterday I had a rash. The night before I was a bit itchy but went to sleep fine. I woke up with a rash on each arm right below my elbow. As the day progressed, the back of my neck started itching. Now, today, the rash seems to have cleared under my elbows but now is prominent on my knees, ankles, wrists and upper arms. I have applied cortizone to help with the itching but is there something I should get to get rid of the rash or will it go away on it's own?
Avatar f tn In my sleep though, I began to itch it, and now what looks like a rash that is covered by a scab surrounds the scar of the former cut. The same rash is on my left and right knees, the back of both of my legs, my elbows, my inner thighs, my lower stomach, and part of my neck. I'm wondering if the itching is causing the spread, but nothing I do seems to heal it. What can I do to help this annoying rash heal quickly?
Avatar f tn I'm told itchy skin is part of the third trimester, but its been pretty intense. Any one else have it bad (to the point of getting bumps/rashes) and what do you use to help?
Avatar m tn Just yesterday I woke up with sores on my hands and fingers. The same sores are on my feet, elbows, ankles, and knees. They are small and red and focus mostly on the joints. These sores are very painful and feel like blisters. What are they and what can I do about them. I can't go to a doctor, because I have no insurance.
Avatar m tn I have this rash on my elbows knees buttocks and pubic region shoulders armpits and my neck. I have a skin biopsy tomorrow and I was wondering what this rash could be associated with? I got blood work done for all stds and nothing came back positive. Could herpes cause eczema? Or my blood tests won't pick up HIV or an std? But they'll be able to find it in my skin? thanks, london.
