What causes a rash on the elbow?
Nothing to worry about ma'am, avoid resting on it from hereon
Hello sir and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. The rash does seem like irritated skin purely due to the pressure applied on it and more frequently doing so. I would recommend simple steps:
+Avoid resting your elbow on any surface, to avoid pressure on it
+Use any steroid cream you can get your hands on and apply generously at least twice daily for 2 weeks
+Make sure the region is always well moisturised
+Weight loss is also recommended ma'am
+Drink plenty of water
If the region itches, then please do write back to me informing me about this and I shall guide you accordingly. I hope you find my response helpful, please do not hesitate to write to me anytime, I am always here to help.
