Hello. It might be a little hard to read the following since my English is not really good, but plz give me some help.
A couple of weeks ago, I found both of my elbows were bitten by something. There were several bumps which formed a triangular pattern on my elbows. They were kinda itchy and hv been lasting for 2 weeks till now. I haven't appied any ointment as I thought they would disappear themselves.
I would like to know what actually bit me and how can I get rid of them.
Thank you so much for reading this. Very Happy

Do you have any dermatologists where you live?

There are many possible diagnoses for skin problems so it's best for you to get it checked by a professional who can also recommend and prescribe necessary ointments and treatments.

It sounds like some very serious disease...I am scared!
I just thought it might be some kinda bug bites. I heard that the bed bug/flea like bitting at inner thighs and elbows.
