Hi doctor,

I have had these multiple skin lumps on the very tip of my elbow for a couple of years now. I have attached the photos for your reference. They look like a wart but are clustered together. Every medication I have used on them has done absolutely nothing. Recently, they have begun to grow and become sensitive. My elbow feels tender right above them. What could they be? I am currently on 75 mg Zoloft, 50 mg Seroquel and 1 mg Ativan (only when required).

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • These might be the lesion of sarcoidosis, lupus vulgaris or nodular xanthoma (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  • The only histopathological examination could confirm the diagnosis, so I would suggest you go for the one.
  • A punch biopsy is the most preferred technique for taking the sample and is relatively painless.
