I wonder what rash this might be on my elbows

I have a rash on both of my elbows which is very itchy at times, and is a bit scaly, tried searching it online but gets a lot of results. Though this past few days I did experience bloatness on my stomach I thought this might be related in some sort but the bloatness is easing down now.

Hi @WaterCh3ese . Thank you for your question!

Based on your picture and the history you have given it doe seem suspicious of psoriasis. I would say you should see your GP for evaluation and perhaps consider a trial of steroid cream of calcineurin inhibitor creams (tacrolimus) and see if it improves. Other possibilities include some types of eczema and fungal infection it can also be a result of excessive scratching causing the skin to overgrow (may have started as a simple insect bite and progressed). 

The evaluation typically requires more history and examination for other similar rashes. If treatment fails, we would usually refer your to a dermatologist who may do a wood lamp examination together with some other tests. 

Hope this helps!
