Why does my son pick at his elbow rash? It never heals.

In brief: We are all pickers
Well, it probably won't heal because the picking isn't allowing it to heal.
That is always a difficult thing to stop as we all will pick at things on our skin. Some of us have more trouble stopping than others. First, get the rash evaluated.

In brief: Common problem
Cover it with a light gauze bandage; if he can't get to it, he'll stop picking it, and it will heal.
