I am a 24 yr old female and I've never had a problem with any kind of rashes or other skin problems. I normally have pretty healthy skin besides a pimple or two on my face every once in a while. Anyway, About 7 days ago I noticed small red dots that I thought were mosquito bites on both outer elbows. A few days later, they got bigger and expanded, leaving a raised, red, EXTREMELY itchy rash. The rash is not dry or flaky and does not have any excretion or leakage. It is just inflamed red itchy skin.
This has been driving me insane for the last week and does not appear to be going away at all. I am a financially strapped college student and don't have extra money to go to the doctor right now. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what this might be and what I should be doing to prevent it from getting worse until I can see a doctor.
Also, I have not eaten anything out of the ordinary or switched lotions, soap, laundry detergent, etc.
