itchy elbow

Hello, i have this problem that's been bugging for a couple of months now. Yung right elbow ko, palaging nangangati, tapos minsan nagbabalat at namumula na, tapos nagiging flaky yung skin pero naglo-lotion naman ako palagi. Nilalagyan ko sya ng hydrocortisone paminsan minsan para magsubside yung redness, tapos makati pa rin sya. Pero yun lang part na yun ng katawan ko, yung right elbow ko lang ang ganun. Ano sa tingin nyo yung problema ko? Eczema ba to or scabies? ANong pwedeng igamot ko dito? Please doctors, i need help. Thank you so much.

    The elbow isn't normally a body part where scabies is found. It's most probably an eczema. Continue with the hydrocortisone cream--apply it 4x a day continuously whether or not there's itchiness, until redness subsides. If it doesn't work after a week, see a dermatologist. You may need stronger medications than hydrocortisone.
