Likely infection: An insect bite that is red is likely infected which commonly happens because the skin now had an opening to the outside world. This is called cellulitis.

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

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

I have seen my Doctor several times over the last 2 years about this red, itchy rash with tiny fluid filled bumps on my knees.
Itchy rash: Rashes are notoriously difficult to solve without seeing them. Hives are like raised patches and can be described as water-filled. Several treatment modalities would help you in that case. Contact allergy may be more likely and an Allergist can help identify triggers and treat that as well. Step 1 is to try not to rub/itch it, which makes the itch worse in either case. ...Read more
