Any help would be greatly appreciated as people have started asking me what they are the one on my inner arm elbow area is quite raised. Thanks for all your help

      Menopause can be associated with a wide range of symptoms and, while it’s not unusual for fluctuating oestrogen levels to upset your skin, it isn’t normally linked to warts. If you feel as though this outbreak is getting worse or more irritated in appearance, I would speak to your doctor just to investigate a bit further. They should be able to offer you advice about treatment options. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Felicity.
