    Default What's this rash? TMI

    Slightly off the parenting topic but thought you mummies could help

    Does this rash look like eczema to you?

    Eczema/hayfever runs in the family but I've never been effected up until now. I remember having quite itchy reactions to grass as a child but nothing in my adult life.

    This rash is in both of my elbow joints, left one (pictured) is the worst one. It's itcy & painful chemist recommended a cream for eczema which has helped a bit but it's hasn't gone away & keeps coming back even bigger.

    I will eventually get to the doctors! Lol but figured since eczema is a common childhood condition other mummies might be able to recognise it. Thanks! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1403128745.469751.jpg

    Definitely see the doctor. It doesn't look like the eczema I used to get

    Maybe a contact allergy. Have you changed washing powder lately or been wearing anything with lots of nylon maybe.

    Other than that I don't know, it looks awfully sore though.

    Ouch Looks like eczema to me.... it can be very painful and itchy. There are so many different triggers and also treatments - looks like a trip to the Doctor is in order if the cream isn't clearing it up.

    Does the patch flake? It could be psoriasis. Definitely check with the doctor.

    No the patch doesn't flake. It is raised & tender (the whole area). Haven't changed anything.. except we've introduced a mini lop to the house.. I'm wondering if I'm allergic to her/the hay in her cage.

    It looks a bit like eczema, only because its in the skin fold where it usually appears. If it doesn't clear up you might need steroid cream. Good luck and try not to scratch.
