I have raised non-itchy bumps outside of elbow and inside of

Customer Question

I have raised non-itchy bumps outside of elbow and inside of forearms. They have no liquid inside them, they start small as a pinhead then grow up to a few centimeters ,get flatter, then red then they go away leaving a dark discoloration where they were. I have had them over a year and just had a biopsy and am awaiting results. I thought it may be a lichenoid type from Lisinopril but we changed to another class of drugs two months ago and they have not cleared up. I have photos. Any ideas?

My GP said they are individualized and contained to my upper arm and forearm and both elbows. If I press down on one on my elbow near the bone it hurts such as a callous would. I have no known allergies and cortisone cream did nothing.

Hi and thanks for the query,

These lesions can be simple acne or more likely eczema though itching is usually associated with these symptoms. I would suggest the best line of action would be to wait for result of biopsy so that exact diagnosis can be confirmed and treatment can be given accordingly to avoid reoccurrence.
