Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes elbows


Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to friction lichenoid dermatitis or eczema skin. For these rashes, do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Also take some antihistaminic like Benadryl and apply a mild steroid cream on the itchy bumps. Also keep the area well moisturized. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn I have a pimple red itchy rashes on my elbows, it started off as one and it itched so much i scratched it, then it got worse and my other elbow began to itch also. =( what do you think it is, could it be a allergic reaction or eczema?
Avatar f tn 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? I would really like an antihistamine that works but doesn't cause another reaction,just crazy!
Avatar f tn Seems like lots of people are afflicted with skin problems, often early in tx. People get rashes and blisters and bumps and such and people have complained of getting some/all of the above in or on nearly every body part you can imagine. I use lots of Yardley Secret Cottage natural almond oatmeal moisturizing lotion for my skin issues. Other people swear by Gold Bond products.

Avatar n tn 1. I am getting allergy rashes on my arms, elbows, fingers, palm, buttock. Not sure what the problem is, but when I use Allegra 120 mg things get calm down or even if I have a bath in hot water I feel comfortable. Could you please in identifying what the exact problem is? 2. Secondly, I do have an issue with Skin again named "Vitiligo", and the patches are seen on both my feets left and right.
Avatar n tn I developed a skin rash localized to my arm, small itchy red bumps sort of clustered all over the outside of my arms, elbows and 1 or 2 small spots on my hands. I was put on a Medrol dose pack and the rash cleared up completely after 3 days. I finished the Medrol and 5 days later I was broken out again, this time only on my elbows and small spots on arms, but all over my back, torso and a few spots on my legs. What could this be? I am trying to get in with a dermatologist asap.
Avatar m tn please i have sudden rashes on my elbows, inside elbows, behind my legs, it comes and goes what should i do? im currently taking fluecinonide ointment usp, 0.05% it works well but the rash comes back suddenly, what should i do?
Avatar f tn hi i was in the bathroom and i find out the i have little spox rashes in my but like dry sking rahes and lower of my butt i see a rash like a buttlerfly i also have nause and low appetites every day is worse im not pregnant. i when to see my doctor he tell me the a have anemia i dont want to say that is lupus but i dont have other answer them that what do u think it is ?
Avatar f tn Since you had a rash that was biopsied to be lupus, it is likely that these rashes are also skin lupus. Along with this you could be having systemic lupus. The possibility of lupus affecting blood vessels and causing vasculitis or their inflammation is also possible.
Avatar m tn sounds like scabies they attack the feet ankles hands fingers and elbows and they look like tiny blisters or skin colored bumps. Im not a doctor but in college I caught these pesky critters along with all my roommates its very contagious and you can only get rid of it by getting proper meds from a doctor . look up pictures and see if they look the same.
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 Yes there's a lot of skin changes during pregnancy due to blood volume and hormones etc. I used to get rashes on my arms, neck,and stomach.
Avatar n tn t feel it at all), but it becomes sticky very easily and the skin kind of glistens a little. When I get hot and sweat, the skin will become very sticky and smelly (much more than normal). After a shower, it doesn't seem to dry very easily like the surrounding normal skin. I've tried long treatments with OTC anti-fungals (lamisil, tolnafate), but it hasn't improved the condition at all. Does this sound like a very stubborn fungus? Or something else?
Avatar m tn These rashes generally were behind my joints in the folds of skin of my elbows, thighs, and knees. Also it was on my behind region as well as my thighs and back. It was a burning sensation and hurt more whenever I itched and also got worse as I presume. The only thing that creates doubt in my mind as to the origin of these is they looked more akin to a nettle rash and the bumps were not discolored other than a red tint.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention that I get these welt looking rashes mainly on my forearms (inside) that are from 2-5" long and narrow that are reddish in color and are raised, they look like someone hit me with a small whip, I have googled everywhere trying to find out what it is with no results, any ideas ?
Avatar n tn My hair is falling out really bad and is very noticeable. But my question is does the treatment also give you rashes on your elbows real bad??
Avatar m tn However, a few days later there a whole bunch of them started to appear. Now I have them on the backs of my hands, the insides of my elbows, my forearms, buttocks, and underarms. I'm going to see a doctor about them but he can't see me for almost a week and these rashes are pretty irritating. what is it? any thoughts?
Avatar m tn Hello I am freaking out at i am experiencing multiple skin problems, i always had a delicate skin and forbidden to go under the sun without protection etc so i decided to get a spray tan by a professional which turned terribly wrong and ended in a violent skin rash, purple and swollen and shiny on my inner elbows, chest, face, stomach and inner knees. After so many treatments, so much money spent and a horrible pain it eventually went away (after 6 weeks).
Avatar f tn Red bumps appeared all over my legs one day, specially behind my knees. As the day went by my knees and elbows began hurting like crazy. At night, my wrists began hurting a lot too. I took an Advil and went to sleep. I got up at 4am and my hands were incredibly swollen. They hurt a lot and I could barely move them. I went to the doctor and got put on steroids. The swelling on my feet and hands went down after a very painful week. My throat also hurt to the point breathing became painful.
Avatar f tn they originally occurred at night and having been consistently appearing most intensely and over the widest surface area during the night (but do occur during the day as well). By what I have seen, they look practically identical to the pictures of hive rashes online. They are occurring basically everywhere: ankles, elbows, abdomen, back, knuckles, backs of the hands, forehead, but most consistently on my inner thighs, the back of my upper legs and my underarms.
Avatar m tn ve had hot flashes, mild night sweats, sore spots on my gums, pale tongue and most of mouth, sudden muscle pain and twitching (including eyelids), constant itching skin, little bumps on my hands, elbows, neck and feet, intermittent rashes, intermittent tingling sensations in my arms, legs, feet and hands, strange sensations in my chest, what I believe may be a heart palpitation or a similar sensation, my heart rate will go up all of the sudden, and I will also get the occasional blood blister in
Avatar m tn I am not 100% sure if the condom did not break as the masseuse removed the condom for me. 7 days later, I develop rashes on my back, as well as on my elbows (both sides). They looked like mosquitoes bites or other insect bites also, but I am not sure as well. Just wanted to ask, 7 days for ARS symptoms to show up is a bit too soon is it? Thanks a lot of any help. Deeply appreciated.
Avatar n tn The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes which are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Atopic eczema is believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families whose members also have hay fever and asthma.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
