Aching off & on with pain in left leg by knee. Alsoo noticed tiny bump. What could be wrong?

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. Antibiotic ointment on it twice a day and keeping it clean can help it heal, and seeing a doctor if it gets more painful, redder, or swollen. ...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

I have small raised bumps on my feet that are very itchy (especially at night) but not red or inflamed-also some (less) around the knees. Suggestions?

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

Step 1 is to try not to rub/itch it, which makes the itch worse in either case. ...Read more
