Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one. ...Read more

Allergic reaction?: If two normal healthy people start to get similar rashes on just the neck and part of one arm, and the bumps are itchy, red, and raised, it is likely that they have some allergic reaction. Reactions may be to poison oak, poison ivy, cosmetics, sunscreens, foods they shared, animals they petted, etc... It could also be "bugs" that bit them both, such as mosquitos or other insects. ...Read more

Itchy?: At this young age, I would be more suspicious of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which may be linked to food allergies as well as airborne allergens. If these rash itch, then eczema is more likely. If you are using Cetaphil lotion, be sure to use it regularly and apply it within 3 mins after bathing. Talk to your pediatrician.

Show this to a doc: Doctors are professionals and they will not 'judge' you for coming to them with a problem. You need a diagnosis. This could be an STD, but it could easily be something else - so there is no reason to suffer. Besides, this disease may become worse-so you want to take action now. If you show a photo of the rash on Health Tap, maybe we could better guide you. Don't be afraid - you need help. ...Read more

The first thing I recommend you do is to go to the Pharmacy and see if they could find some cream for your elbow. If they can you will have to pay (small amount) but your problem will be solved.
If the Pharmacist feels that you should not take the medicine till you have seen the doctor, please do as they suggest.
Hope all goes well - please let me know. ...Read more
