I Fell And My Knee Is Swollen
Yesterday I fell skating and my knee is swollen, painful and bruised. It hurts when I bend it while walking. Is the only thing I can do is ice it?
Ice for 48 hrs.: At a minimum, you have a contusion. RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) is standard first-line treatment. Oral anti-inflammatories like Aleve (naproxen) or Advil will help, but can increase bleeding. If the pain and swelling does not resolve in 1-2 weeks or if there is locking or giving out, you need to see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your problem. However, you described yourself as only skidding and scraping knees as the injury. However, you sustained a number of scrapes including one that is deep. The area is very painful, swollen and tender to the touch. I know that you used iodine and peroxide. However, I am wondering if you may have developed an infection of the skin overlying the knee caps to account for pain this severe. If the area is red, hot, has drainage, there is swelling of the surrounding area, there are red streaks or you have a fever - these are more definitive signs of infection. I don't recommend applying a pressure dressing. With your pain being this severe, it would be prudent to be medically evaluated. ...Read more
Hi, My daughter, age 5, fell on her knees on paving (yesterday). This morning her left knee is swollen, looks like fluid inside. Applying ice, elevation, rest & Nerufen. Not much pain. Should we continue or see a doctor?
Wait: Hi Willie891. What u r doing appears to be adequate for now. Make sure when the knee is elevated, it’s above the level of the chest, so she has to lie down. Do not apply ice directly to the skin, use it in a towel and for 10-15 minutes every hour. If the swelling persists, it becomes painful or there are any other symptoms like instability, see a doctor. For now, it’s safe to watch and wait ...Read more
