Candida: The antecubital and popliteal fossae in young chubby babies are areas where they can get a candidal yeast infection due to humidity and wetness. You can use nystatin topically three times a day for 4 weeks. Also important to keep the area dry, consider using vaseline to keep the area from getting wet. ...Read more

Sure: Probably have chondromalacia patelli, inflamation under knee cap. Hurts more on stair and getting out of a low chair (like a car seat). Ice is a local anesthetic (decreases pain). Used after an activity that usually causes pain and swelling it can also decrease the swelling. ...Read more

Reevaluation: The Most likely possibilities are that you have ITB syndrome that has failed conservative care, or that the pain is coming from something else, such as a pinched nerve in the back. If you have not had one, an MRI of the lumbar spine as well as the hip itself would likely confirm the diagnosis. Don't hesitate to seek a second opinion to get a fresh set of eyes to look at you as well. ...Read more

You should at least get x-rays done to check it if your knee gives out then it is more serious. Please see an orthopedics surgeon or your primary care doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Crawling sensation on my left leg only, always below the knee. No nerve damage that I know of and happens throughout the day. Not only at night.

Crawling sensation on my left leg only, always below the knee. No nerve damage that I know of and happens throughout the day. Not only at night.

Nerve endings: That sensation probably represents irritability in the superficial nerves of the leg. Since there are no other neurological symptoms,it probably isn't a serious problem but it would be worthwhile to check for vitamin B 12 deficiency if symptoms persist. A neurologist could advise you further as needed. ...Read more

Child is knocked kneed can this cause pain in the knees?

Child is knocked kneed can this cause pain in the knees?

Usually not: Many children are knock kneed, or have genu valgus. As long as the angle is small, it usually does not cause pain. On the other hand, if there is a history of trauma, or infection, and the deformity is not symmetric, or mild, it may cause a significant force imbalance. This can lead to issues with the ligaments and cartilage with resultant pain. ...Read more
