Itchy rash on elbow, outer hip, lower abdomen, behind knees, putting hydrocortisone, gone, again coming up. What to do?

I have a very itchy rash that started on my elbow. I now have it on my outer hip, lower abdomen and behind one of my knees. It starts as little bumps almost like bug bites and after I scratch it turns into a blotchy red rash. I have been putting hydrocortisone cream on it which helps. The one on my arm started almost 2 months ago. It is almost gone, but now the other ones have shown up.

welcome to healthcare magic forum .
thank you for your query .
it look like some allergic or infective condition '
it may be due to dry skin mainly
you need to apply good moisturizer 3-4 times a day
for itching you can take tab cetrizine at night
hydrocortisone will help you
do not scratch or pick the skin as it will increase chance of infection .
it may be due to heredity reason also .
better to consult dermatologist if not improved
