Hello,

The red and swollen elbow without an injury can be due to an insect bite and allergic reaction. An inflammation also needs to be ruled out after a direct examination.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopedic Surgeon
