I have a painful pimple like bump with white head on my elbow. What could it be? Could laying on my bed or applying pressure on my elbow at my desk cause it?
Yes: This could be as simple as a pimple that has not come to surface yet. Constant pressure or irritation to the area can cause this. If you are having fevers, chills or limited range of motion of your elbow joint, a more serious infection could be developing and you should seek medical attention. If not, a warm compress and avoiding the pressure to the area should be helpful.See 1 more doctor answer
I've had a very painful bump on my arm right above the elbow for about 2 weeks now. Skin around it seems to be peeling. And it is slightly swollen. What can it be??
Hyperkeratosis: When skin thickens on the elbows and knees it gets bumpy, rough and sometimes itch. This is best treated with a skin exfoliating cream. There are over-the-counter creams with 12% ammonium lactate to start with. However, sometimes you may need a prescription cream to help those really stubborn spots.
Sorry: We do not have access to pics of your bumps. You will need to be seen.

I have this hard bump on my elbow. Its movable and I was wondering if I should get it clocked out. It has been there for 8 months now.?
Probably benign: I would have this checked out only f it is bothering you. Otherwise I would not worry about it.
Rash: Any skin condition is difficult to identify without seeing it or having more history. What does it look like? Is it red? Flad/raised? Etc. It could be that your knees have come into contact with something and is showing an allergic reaction. Could be eczema or psoriasis or skin rashes can sometimes be a sign of something going on internally. Best to have a doctor take a look and take a full history.See 1 more doctor answer
