It would be unusual for it to be confined to the area described and unusual to be the same on both sides. Eczema is common behind the knees.

I fell this morning, landing directly on my right knee on concrete. Have "road rash", bruising and swelling, as well as a distinct feeling of liquid around the kneecap, which is my main concern. Can flex and walk on it. Safe to treat at home?

Usually dramatic: This is typically a painful, traumatic and debilitating injury. Initial symptoms would be pain in the front of the knee, diffuse swelling around the knee, and difficulty straightening the knee without assistance. Often the leg feels powerless and as if you are dragging it, because the powerful quad muscle in your thigh is no longer connected to the lower leg (tibia). Seek medical attention. ...Read more
