I just signed up on this site mostly because i dont know if i should go see a doctor or just brush these bumps off as nothing. i get very painful, red bumps on my elbows. only on my elbows. they arent pimples. i dont believe they are spider-bites like my husband and i originally thought, what spiders would bite over and over again in the same place. i wont notice them until i accidentally touch one and they are VERY tender to even the lightest touch. they are about the size of a big pimple, tho my husband says he can get a pimple way bigger (eww) there is a big bump in the middle but there is an area about the size of a nickel thats just red outside the big bump. i manage to grit my teeth and pop one and it wasnt yellow pus or anything on the inside just clear. i dont think its an abcess (sp?) anyone have an idea? thanx! -laura jones
