For the last year I've been experiencing an on again off again elbow rash on one or both of my elbows. The rash begins as one small red raised area that is itchy and if I scratch it it spreads rapidly and after I've scratched they almost look like hives. Once they are raised this red bumps are intensely itchy and I have to use ice to calm the beast and take antihistamines to calm the rash down. It then can take weeks for the rash to dissapear. Since it responds to antihistamines do you think this is an allergic dermatitis and I need to figure out what I'm allergic to or could it be psoriasis? (I have the idea of it being psoriasis)
