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?

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

Itchy small blisters in the back of my left knee, from 4 days. Is it serious?

Contact dermatitis?: Do you have poison ivy in your area? Did you come in contact with plastic, metal, or chemicals in that area of your leg? It sounds like your skin may be reacting to something it came in contact with. If it is painful, or has a cloudy pus-like discharge, or you have fever, get seen to rule out infections. Otherwise, wash it well and try hydrocortisone cream 2x/day. ...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.

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.

Clear fluid is prob: Nothing. Cells contain fluid as does the space around the cells so this may be nothing. But sores concern me. I would see dermatologist to determine cause of sores, Apply topical antibiotic and cover with bandaid until you see someone. If lesions heal with topicals you may be scratching at night and opening your skin. Check any animals for fleas ...Read more

I have a large bump in my left knee and it hurts what is it?

Right infront?: It is difficult to tell what type of problem you have from a short question/info you provided. Being 18 and I assume this is a new, large, painful bump (as pictured here?) is call a prepatella bursitis, inflammation of the area just infront of your knee cap. Often result from trauma/kneeling/falling on it a couple of days prior. Motrin/aleve may help. If worsens, consullt doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I fell yesterday at church and missed a step down and landed on my left knee, I have a small bump and I had it in ice all day long yesterday. I can?

I have had 2 arthroscopic surgeries done on my left knee. Now whenever I bump it, the pain is excruciating. Does anyone know why?

I have had 2 arthroscopic surgeries done on my left knee. Now whenever I bump it, the pain is excruciating. Does anyone know why?

I will tell you: There is a superficial nerve come from inside the knee to outside the knee, sometime this nerve accidently cut during arthroscopy, when is cut (partial, or total cut) it form what we call neuroma at the site if you pump that area you will have what are describing. Rear but possible.
Check it out. ...Read more

There is a bone-like bump below my left knee but it does not cause pain. Only slighty if I prod it with a little force, or when I squat deep?

There is a bone-like bump below my left knee but it does not cause pain. Only slighty if I prod it with a little force, or when I squat deep?

Could be a few thing: I'm not sure exactly where its located
due to your age it may be the proximal
tibial growth plate or even the head of the
fibula
it may be somewhat inflamed from exercise
hard to say much more without an exam and
xray of the area. ...Read more

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

Cause of itching skin total area from the left knee to the ankle with no visable bumps or rash.?

One does not have: To see something to itch...For example (not implying this is what you have) if one ever works with insulation and doesn't wear proper clothing they get fiberglass on their skin - it itches intensely but one doesn't see anything....You can try showering and applying soap and water to the region and then applying an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. If no improvement see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: A teen with some pain behind the knee, and a weird-feeling "something" there, may have inflammation there (called a baker cyst). Other problems can occur, so a primary care doctor, a sports medicine doctor, or an orthopedic doctor can evaluate. Often with active teens, knee problems show up when sports training increases, when a new sport is started, or new shoes are used, etc... ...Read more

Urticaria: Seems acute urticaria, may due to something you ate or exposed too or a medicine, or may be a pet, OTC antihistamines would help, start with the less sedating as loratadine or fexofenadine, don't drive if you feel drowsy, avoid the cause of the rash if known, if no improvement see your doctor ...Read more
