Thanks for choosing HCM.., is viral disease...,

it has dermatomal pattern grouped lesions..ok,

So it is not Herpes...,

Pimple type lesions on it associated with itch..,

not mentioned...,could be ATOPIC DERMATITIS...,

simple one....ok.,

Sexual disease(STD)in your age is very rare...,

and also lesions are not confined to elbow area...,

So ther is no chance of STD...,

First of all...think about common problems..ok.,

Don't think about abnormalties and uncommon problems...,

consult good dermatologist...,

He can direct U correctly...ok..,
