Hi My name is Peter; I have had this skin condition on my outer elbows for 4 years now. Looks like a group of blisters or warts. The bumps move around a bit . They get larger and then decrease in size. always stay in the elbow area. Recently I have had similar bumps on my right knee and my but cheeks. I have been to the doctor twice and both times they were confused but thought it must be some kind of warts. I had them frozen wich was terrible and painful. they came back after. then I was prescribed very expensive cream Aldara cream wich is for genital warts. It had no effect at all. The bumps are not itchy and do not bother me unless I rub or bump them on anything. The pain is delayed after a bump but very sharp pain and lasts 20 seconds or so. As I said they are never itchy and they never competly stay in the same spot. Affected area on both elbows is about 2 inches by 2 inches. I am planning on seeing a dermatoligist but I thought I might fnd something on the internet. Any Ideas?
