Elbow pain: Sounds like he contused his elbow by your description. If he has any problems with range of motion or increasing pain or swelling do not hesitate to have it checked and possibly frayed. Expect by your description that he should be fine in a couple of days.

Irritant: Some element in the ointment is irritating the skin, try aquaphor or vaseline frequently.
