What is this rash?

On the inside of my elbo crease, it isn't bleeding/painful/raised but I keep getting it. Any ideas what it is?

Looks a little bit eczema-ish. I'd just moisturise the hell out of it for starters - use an emollient like Diprobase.

It is under the skin, does exzema do that?

I'm absolutely not an expert, but my DS's eczema looks very similar at times. Maybe ask a pharmacist?

I know this sounds odd but do you carry your handbag/carrier bags in the crook of your arm? Sometimes you can get a pin prick rashes from the pressure on the skin. Just a thought.....

I spoke to a dr (don't worry- as a friend, I didn't waste nhs time)... It is the handbag. Wished the ground would swallow me when he said!
