Swollen Knee With Skin Rash Behind It
New laundry detergent caused me to get a skin rash on my legs and behind my knees. Now it seems behind my knees is a little swollen. What can I do?
Stop: Stop using the new detergent and switch to one without harsh chemicals or fragrances. Something like ivory or similar store brands...See your family doc for a check of the symptoms to make sure that is what it actually is....

Allergies: Patients with allergies can develop red and itchy skin around the eyes and on the eyelids from allergies. Behind the knees and on the inside part of the elbow too. This skin condition is called allergic dermatitis or allergic eczema. You can use a hypoallergenic cream/lotion: cetaphil or lubriderm and consider contacting your medical doctor about taking allergy pills-such as Claritin (loratadine) or allegra.See 1 more doctor answer

I have 4 circular rashes on my feet, knee and knuckles. They don't itch or hurt but are growing. As a side note, my knuckles are swollen. Any ideas?
Many possibilities: Rashes that are circular could be due to a number of possible conditions including psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and some granulomatous conditions. Psoriasis can be associated within arthritis. Consult a dermatologist to check the rash and for a potential biopsy and lab work for your symptoms.

Very itchy rash under arms and breast, behind knees and ears, inside elbows and in vaginal and anal area. Skin biopsy show eosinophils. What does this mean? Could this be a food sensitivity?
Eosinophilic rashes: A variety of diseases can cause diffused skin rashes with eosinophilic infiltration including those mentioned in previous answers. However it seems like it affects both skin and mucus membrane and it is very diffused. Hypereosinophilic syndrome is a concern. Either an allergist, dermatologist, or hematologist can help you in this case.See 3 more doctor answers

Consider HSP: Henoch-Schonlein Purpura causes a skin rash typically below waist, pain in the joints, and sometimes stomach pain. The rash looks like small bruises or small reddish-purple spots. It's usually on the buttocks, around the elbows and on the legs. HSP can also cause fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Symptoms can last for about 4-6 weeks. HSP usually gets better without any treatment.
