Raised Bumps on Elbow
Hi i just noticed this morning my elbows were itchy so i scratched it and now this afternoon i have these raised round bumps on my elbows. On my left elbow i have 4 round raised bumps that sort of look like mesquito bites but they are that puffy they are just a tad bit raised and round and on my Right elbow it has two big raised bumps not in a circle shape.

What could this be it just started this morning does it have anything to do with HIV i had protected oral sex a couple weeks ago and i dont have any other rashes on my body.

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be contact dermatitis, nummular dermatitis or ringworm. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. 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. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.

For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Also use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.

If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist.
Hope it helps. Take care and regards.
