Itchy rash inside elbow

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash inside elbow


Avatar m tn I have an itchy and sore rash that popped up on the inside of my elbow. I haven't done anything new, such as eating, washing clothes, etc. It looks kind of like poison ivy although it isn't spreading and it is also 2 ft. of snow on the ground, so I haven't been around any. It also isn't spreading. I have been using cortizone to try and help with the inflamation and itchiness, but it isn't working. I have had this for three or four days now.
Avatar f tn I have a red spot on the inside of my elbow. It's on my left arm. It's about an inch wide and shaped like a circle. It doesn't feel any different than my skin normally would (bumps, pain, itchy, etc.), but I am concerned because it's been there for over a week now. It's just bright red similar to a burn.
Avatar n tn the next day I woke up with a big rash on the top of my hand, elbow and arm and wrist with very small itchy watery blisters inside the skin. The rash went away but it left a scar on the top of my hand. and I still have and get the itchy watery blisters inside the skin only on the top of my hand and my wrist. and can not get rid of it. I do not have insurance to see a doctor… can any one please help. Or do you know what I might have.
Avatar n tn My 16 yr old daughter has developed a harsh, red rash which is very painful and started in the soft tissue inside her elbow, and now has spread to all around her neck. We have tried benadryl, calamine lotion, aveeno, baking soda, caladryl, hydrocortizone creams, and everything else we can think of. HELP!
Avatar m tn They have increased in number and a week after them appearing on my left elbow they have appeared on my right elbow too. Now there are many skin coloured lumps clustered all over this area, with a lot red and itchy and sore as a result of me scratching them. I noticed that the area was weeping and crusting over with a yellow residue last week but this no longer happens.
Avatar f tn I am a 25 y/o female and have had a rash on the inside of my right elbow for the past 5 months. Sometimes it looks like a bunch of small raised red dots (kind of look like pimples or sometimes like little red blisters) and sometimes (mostly after itching it a lot and it's EXTREMELY itchy) it looks blotchy and more raised. It's a square-ish area on the inside of the elbow and hasn't spread from that spot over the past 5 months. It comes and goes but is always there for the most part.
Avatar f tn I have "the rash" too. For 2 yrs on the inside of my upper arms and now bend of elbow, behind knees, wrists, forearms, thighs and abdomen. My doctor told me the reaction was coming from the inside out so there isn't a topical solution only a topic relief. A steroid pak worked until 3 days after I finished the meds and I was back in the same position. Spray sunburn relief with lidocaine is very comforting. Antihistamines don't work at all.
Avatar n tn And then there's these skin issues. I don't have the standard riba of my elbows broke out in horribly itchy stuff did not respond to tea tree oil...I scratched the skin off until it itched AND hurt. At that point, I scrounged around in my medicine cabinet and found an RX given me several yrs ago for eczema on my ankle.
Avatar m tn about 2 months ago i had a small red rash inside (both) of my elbow creases. i didn't really worry about it because it wasnt that bad for me to care. but it slowly started spreading. it wasnt itchy but got really dry and scaly if not mosturized. recently about 2 weeks ago i tried a corticosteriod cream which cleared up the rash but instead gave me tons of bumps around the rash area. ( i think it was an allergic reacation) i stopped using the cream and now i'm dealing with 2 problems.
Avatar n tn Nummular eczema as the name implies may present with round and coinlike rash. The rash may be wet and itchy. A fungal infection may also resent with a red rash and itchiness. A psoriasis may not necessarily present with scales. A specific type of psoriasis usually involves skin folds and they may present as a red rash devoid of scales. A complete physical examination will be able to help.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have a rash. It started next to my knee. Small red dots that are very itchy. It now spread on the inside of my upper leg. Now I also have these red itchy dots on my arm and there some are a bit bigger (mostly on the inside of my elbow all the way up to my hand). Both my hands have itchy small swolen dots (not red) on the sides of my fingers.

Avatar n tn I also came back from mexico a month ago and about once a week now I am getting these bumpy raised mosquito looking spots on my lower back, butt, and recently upper left arm and they are itchy. They come at night and are gone by the morning. Any idea???
Avatar n tn I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a rash often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Avatar n tn I live in Florida and suffer from the same "itchy arms," and have for several years. No rash, no bumps, no discoloration - just INTENSE itching on tops and sides from the elbow down. I have never noted whether or not it is seasonal; but it does come and go. I also have psorasis, but not on my arms. In the past I have taken ultra violet light treatments for this condition and have always wondered if that did some type of damage to the nerves in my arms.
Avatar f tn I discovered a pink rash on both arms on the inner part below my elbow today (not there yesterday). The right one is 10cm x 7 cm, and the left is 9.5cm x 6cm. They are not itchy or raised. The edges are rough, but they're slightly darker than the inside. The rash is not raised, but my arms may be slightly swollen. I have had peripheral edema in my ankles and lower legs for the past 2 1/2 months.
Avatar n tn It is usually a spot near my elbow or wrist, but can be on my forearm or the area between my shoulder and elbow. It usually happens in the night, or evening, occasionally it happens in the afternoon. There is no real pattern. It starts with a strange sensation, then it gets warm, and then itches, and if I touch it, it explodes into a relentless deep itch. My only relief is ice, or an icy hot patch when it is mild. I’ve had physicians watch it as it would start to happen.
Avatar m tn I am going into my third week of a crazy-itchy rash that began on the inside of my forearm just below my elbow. Now it is everywhere but my face. It is worst around my armpits at the back, both sides, down the sides of my torso, under my breasts, groin area, buttocks and behind my knees. I can't sleep with the itchiness. I am also missing my period and waiting on a blood test to determine if I'm pregnant. Therefore not going pharmaceutical until I'm 100% sure.
Avatar n tn I have developed a rash on mu knees, little red spots whcih can be itchy at times but not all the time. It get worse when I itch it and then sometimes will go away in a week and then come back a few days later. This has been going on for quite a while and I am not sure what to do?
Avatar n tn I think the same rash is on my earlobe and the inside crease of my elbow, but in both of those spots it is very minimal, mostly on my penis. It also looks as to be appearing on a knucle. All places itch very bad, especially if I scatch them. No heads, or puss or discharge of any kind, just whitish pink red different sized/shaped bumps that together form what looks like a rash. Definetly not bug bites I dont think. Some are red and some are more flesh colored, but in the light they stick out.
Avatar m tn I will try the Vitamin C regimen. Thank its skipped over to the inside of my left wrist, midway elbow crook and wrist. Awful...early this a.m., it was on my shin. Some days it is awful on my back and I fear I will look and see skin cancers growing but alas it is not.
Avatar n tn I cannot believe it. The internet is great. I woke up yesterday with itchy ankles -- no rash, just itch. Today it is even worse and now I have momentary itches all over, but the ankles & legs are the worst. I live in Virginia -- don't know if geography has anything to do with it. I have been looking around the internet for possible causes, and found this site. Hope we can figure this out -- this itching business will drive you crazy and I have only itched for a little over a day!!!
3203287 tn?1346460234 I'm on day 4 on triple therapy and developed an itchy area on the inside of my elbow (in the soft bend of arm). I realized it was small bumps so I put some hydocortisone cream on them and they are better. this is just something I had in the house. Is there a better ointment that I should buy? It seems early to start having problems with this. I haven't felt great all day. I get up to do something and start to feel nausea so I lay back down. Day 4......
Avatar m tn My symptoms are exactly the same as Moonsie in a previous post. I have tried many treatments prescribed by my GP and my Dermatologist to no avail. Any news on this condition? Any suggestions? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dermatology/Itchy-rash-moving-to-new-sections-of-body/show/1508237">Itchy rash moving to new sections of body</a>.
Avatar m tn Let me say thank you for helping me out with this and also apologize if this is a bit lenghty. About 3 weeks ago (oct 8ish) i started with this itchy rash on my arms (outter and inner bicep area). It was just red itchy bumps. Now being a bit of a hypochondirac lol i got all nervous and didnt know what it could be. There was no pus or anything like that just patches of itchy bumbs.
Avatar n tn For the last few winters I have been getting small circular rashes on (mostly) the inside of my elbow and upper chest. The rash starts as a small scaly patch and then grows eventually to the size of a quarter. They are always circular and fairly well defined but there is rarely a defined border, although the center is sometimes lighter. Occasionally they will get red, but for the most part they are pink and the skin gets very scaly.
Avatar n tn Let's say if I lie down on my side and bend my arm to hold my head, the inside of the elbow becomes damp and the rash and itchiness appear. I have tried many different body wash, several deodorants, calamine lotion and nothing seems to make a permanent difference.
