For over several months now, I have had red dry patches on my elbows and knees. Some areas of my scalp around my hairline has dry white patches as well. I thought maybe I may have psoriasis so I bought over the counter topical medication and applied it to my elbows and knees. I also bought special shampoo. Now in the last 2 weeks, I have broken out in a rash that looks like the same thing on my elbows and knees. The rash is now behind my knees, on my thighs, stomach, and by my elbows. Does anybody have any idea what this may be?
