Does anyone know what can cause these bumps?

Hi guys,

Every couple of months, I get these red, itchy bumps on my knees ( sometimes on my elbows as well ). They last couple of weeks, and then suddenly go away. They are super itchy, and the more I scratch them, the more raised they become. I just got them ( again ) two nights ago. They first appeared on my knees, then I got them on my elbows as well. It's always either on my knees or on my knees and elbows. I usually put benadryl cream, and after some initial burning, the bumps ( for the lack of better word ) stop itching. I should have visited a dermatologist, but since they would go away after a while ( and the dermatologist on my insurance plan is an hour from here ), I never made the appointment to be honest. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this in the past? I'm wondering what can it be? What's even more strange is that this started happening about a year ago...Here is the photo of my knees from last year. They look about the same today, just with more bumps. Bumps usually spread out slightly, as the days go by, and then they disappear. After the bumps go away, my knees/elbows return back to normal.

Looks like eczema to me. I get it all over my hands because I wash them so much.

It's part heredity, part dry skin, and part a number of other theories.

You should consult a vet.

Wait a minute...

Also thinks it looks like eczema. I get it on the inside of my elbows and on my face every winter.
Use Aquaphor healing ointment through out the day and if that doesnt help, an over the counter cordisone cream. If that doesn't help or gets worse you need to go to a Dermatologist.

Don't use any scented lotions, fabric softeners, perfumes etc and switch to a natural soap until it goes away. DONT SCRATCH IT

I get eczema from certain environmental allergies and whenever my skin is dry or I'm stressed. Very itchy, but if you scratch it it'll leave a HUGE dark scar when it's done. Sounds totally bizzare, but I put a little minty toothpaste on it and it stops being so itchy. Downside is that you'll have a minty-smelling crust whereever it is so if you're showing your knees to anyone they'll ask what it is.

Oh, I forgot to mention that for my eczema I use the fragrance free Aveeno for extra dry skin. It comes in a tube with a blue lid.

I will go to the store and look for those creams, thank you for the suggestions!I have a boudoir photoshoot at the end of January, and I hope the bumps will go away. I would hate to take photos with red/bumpy knees.

My vote is also eczema. If you have asthma and/or allergies they often seem to go hand in hand. If you see a dermatologist they can give you creams that will work faster, but typically what my doctor told me is the "greasier the better". Lube up and cover it to keep the moisture in. Also, sun helps (why winter tends to make it worse), so tanning helps (not that I recommend tanning), not sure where you live but my skin is always better during the summer or after vacationing somewhere tropical.
