Painful red bumps on knuckles. Happening on &off for years.What could this be? It doesnt itch, its not dry skin, nor is it hard in nature.

Possibly eczema

Dermatology relies on visual clues more than any other field. Several diagnoses come to mind, but small details in the presentation will define the lesion.

small itchy bumps on my knuckle?

Itchy bumps

Open-uri20120808-28375-1dhspgd
Small bumps can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons, but when they are "ichy" it is usually an indication that they are a "reaction" to something - an "allergy". You may be allergic to something that your skin is coming in contact with like a soap or lotion - could also be clothing. Try to find out what is causing the reaction, eliminate it, and see if it gets better. Steroid cream may help

Ecezema

It sounds like ecezema. Only an examination would be confirmatory. A variety of conditions affecting the skin can have itchiness and bumps as symptoms. A dermatologist is an expert who can confirm what your condition is, and an recommend the proper treatment. Good luck.

My 14 year old daughter has bumps on her knuckles. She is very athletic. What could this be!

Many possibilities

Women
It's hard to know for certain without looking at them. If the bumps are not bothering her, warts or molluscum contagiosum are two common possibilities. If the bumps are itchy, eczema or a skin reaction are possibilities. Often a physical exam is all that's needed to make the diagnosis.

I have red itchy bumps on my knuckles and elbows. They've been there for about 2 months and don t show signs of going away. What can I do about it?

Red itchy bumps

Elbow_pain
If you haven't already, start with avoiding any hard scrubbing or washing with soap on those areas. Use a daily barrier ointment like aquaphor immediately after shower. You can also try a OTC steroid ointment for a week or so to see if it improves. Rashes are notoriously difficult to diagnose and manage without a picture so make sure you see your doc if not improving. Good luck!
