Small sometimes itchy bumps...

Small sometimes itchy bumps only on elbows

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Are you a bot?

Doctor's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the doctor more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing I can determine makes it better or worse... maybe when I lean on my work desk with long sleeves

How long have you had that and have you tried anything for it?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Comes and goes for last couple years maybe.. sometimes put creams on it which seems to ease the itching

Definitely now psoriasis from how it looks

And not fungal like ringworm

It looks like a kind of inflammatory eczema and there usually aren't any triggers for that

For now you could try over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream and oral Claritin or Zyrtec

But if that doesn't help you'd need prescription tacrolimus cream

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
