Cracked and dry skin around the elbows is a common, sometimes painful problem. If the cracks expose sensitive flesh, it can even become infected. So, it’s important to treat the problem asap to stop it from worsening and becoming tougher to treat.
Several factors can lead to dry and cracked elbows. For some people, it’s just a natural occurrence caused by genetics, a dry skin complexion or aging skin. For others, it’s lifestyle-related, perhaps because of obesity, or not drinking enough water.
Then there are also a number of medical conditions that result in dry and cracked elbows; conditions like:
Dermatitis – a skin condition usually triggered by an allergy to chemicals or fabrics that touch your elbows, or a sensitivity to gluten (dermatitis herpetiformis). Avoid these triggers and the dermatitis should go away.
Psoriasis – mostly appearing on the elbows and knees, this condition appears as scaly white bumps that develop over a red patch of skin. A common treatment is a phototherapy that treats dry elbows with light. Moisturizers can help relieve symptoms, and oral medicine may reduce itching.
Scleroderma – this chronic hereditary disease often attacks the tips of the elbows, causing skin to swell and become dry and painful to the touch. Immunosuppressive drugs may reduce the symptoms, which are often more pronounced in cold weather.
Diabetes – skin conditions on the elbows, such as painful infections, boils and skin that gets red and hot, may be an indication of the onset of diabetes. A skin biopsy will reveal the cause of the condition and the most fitting treatment.
