Why Do I Have Bumps On My Elbows
Why do I have notciable bumps on my elbow after I came from the beach? What I did there is just put beach water on my arms and rubed sand on arm. Rinse
Likely irritation: Your skin likely has a topical reaction to the exposure; possibly, rubbing sand irritated your skin. Try topical Hydrocortisone cream 1% 2-3 times a day for a few days. If there is redness and swelling, there might have been an exposure triggering an allergic reaction. In this case, try benedryl 50mg every 6 hr for 1-2 days. If it continues or is problematic, call your md.
Reaction: It appears that you may have a reaction to albuterol when you take it via a dermatologic manifestation. Trying some antihistamines may reduce the presence and occurrence of this.
Sometimes I get red itchy bumps on my elbows only. Only last a week at the most then goes away. What is this?

Viral rash: Many viruses can cause a rash in addition to other symptoms such as fever and cough. Many of these rashes are not specific or characteristic enough to identify the virus. The viral rash itself is not usually serious. But it is very important to make sure the rash is not part of a serious infection such a meningococcal infection. If you have any concerns then contact your doctor immediately.
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.
