Yes they appeared quite quick big red itchy lumps behind my left knee almost within a few minutes and quite large only on one knee?
What happened first?: What happened before the lumps appeared? Were you stung/bitten by an insect? Had you rubbed against some plants/weeds? We need more information to provide the best answer. Possibly using topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or taking zyrtec/benadryl/claritin by mouth will resolve issue, but fp should see lumps & get complete history. ...Read more

I have sores on my right armpit and leg and on my left knee they are itchy at night and leak clear fluids. I don't know what they are or how to help.

If lesions heal with topicals you may be scratching at night and opening your skin. Check any animals for fleas ...Read more

I have several small flesh colored/pink bumps right below my left knee cap - what are these and how can I get rid of them?
I fell landed on left knee is not swollen put ice all day yesterday and today I can walk I have small bump should I xray it im concerned?
Probable Bruise: Simply falling on the knee and striking it on the ground, without a twist is more likely to cause a superficial contusion (bruise) than significant internal injury. If you are bearing weight well with point tenderness over the bump, continue icing several times a day for the next day or two. If there is increasing pain swelling or difficulty walking, then I would have it seen and possibly xrayed. ...Read more
