Rash on inner elbow

Ive had this rash on my inner elbow going on a month now. Its red,itchy, and has bumps. It seems to be getting more irritated throughout this week. I dont have health care so it there anything else that i can do for it. Ive used the same laundry soap for years, same body soap as well. Is there anything that i should be doing?

Hello,
It can be contact dermatitis or fungal infection. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen or antihistaminics like Benadryl for itching. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
