I have Photoshop Elements Version 18.0 bought in 2020. Lately when I open a RAW photo I see red streaks and splotches on some objects in the photo. These streaks do not appear however in the JPG of the same photo nor do they appear when I look at the photo in my Nikon ViewNX software. Also, the red streaks do not print. Has my Elements software been corrupted somehow?

Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing with the raw files.  If your program has become corrupted, you can bring it back to out-of-the-box condition by resetting the preferences file. Go to Edit>Preferences>General tab and click the Reset Preferences on next launch button.

Have a look at the small triangle icon on the top right of the color histogram. This would be to warn you that a R,G,B channel at least is clipped by overexposure.

I am sure Michel is correct in his diagnosis.  Here is a screenshot of what the overexposure clipping looks like.  You can turn it off by clicking on the triangles mentioned.  (Underexposure/shadow clipping will appear as blue streaks.)
