  • I had this for months. I finally went to the doctor and it turned out to be eczema. He prescribed Ellidel and it went away immediately.

  • Sounds like an allergy to me.

  • I had that in high school, and like mompam, I went to the doctor and found it was excema. They presribed Ellicon cream (similar to what she used probably) and it cleared up in a couple days/weeks, don't quite remember. It has never come back. They are probably puffy and irritated from the scratching. If you can't afford to go to the doc, you could try an over the counter hydrocortisone cream, but the ellicon/elidel is a steroid.
