What Causes Ringworm Like Sore Above Elbow With Scaly Skin?

I have a ringworm type sore above my elbow on the outside of my arm. It is not really sore, but it is spreading. Sometimes it gets a little scaly, looking like psoriasis. I noticed today that I am developing one on the other elbow in the same location. A few months ago when I was fixing my hair, I noticed that area on both elbows looked very blue, like a bad bruise. Any ideas?? Glenda

Hello,

Your symptoms could be suggestive of psoriasis, based on the location and your description. Anyway, I recommend consulting with a dermatologist for a physical exam.

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