I have two hot, mildly swollen bumps. One on my foot and one on my knee. I have scratched both raw.

Bumps: Ok, it is tough to say what they may be, especially over the computer. Scratching them raw was not a good idea, as that increases the risk of them getting infected if they were not already. See the Doctor for an examination and diagnosis of them so the proper treatment can occur. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Why is my foot so swollen after knee surgery?

Why is my foot so swollen after knee surgery?

DVT: Your foot is probably swollen from the trauma of knee surgery, but it can be swollen from a blood clot in your leg, which can be extremely dangerous. Deep venous thrombus can have formed in one of the deep veins in your leg causing the swelling in your foot. Knee surgery puts you at a very high risk for this. It can be very dangerous as this can progress to a pulmonary embolism. So get checked out. ...Read more

Swollen R knee in posterior popliteal nodes, where if I lay or stand I'm in so much pain all the way to the middle of my foot.?

Be seen: I would be seen to make sure it is accurately diagnosed. The three most common causes would be a bakers cyst in the knee, a variant of a sciatica, or a blood clot. Because a blood clot is potentially life threatening. You should be seen to have this ruled out as it can definitely cause what you are describing. ...Read more

Why is my foot and lower leg swollen after knee injury from a fall a week ago?

Why is my foot and lower leg swollen after knee injury from a fall a week ago?

Gravity: Typically, if there is swelling around the knee, gravity will push that fluid to the lower leg. Another possibility is that swelling from the knee joint will leak out the back of the knee through a Baker's cyst. Although unlikely, a blood clot has to be considered, especially if you've been immobilized. See a doctor very soon or call the one already treating you for more advice as soon as possible ...Read more

I hit my leg below my knees was swollen. I put ice and wrapped it with a bandage for a week. Now I look at my foot on the side of my foot is purple?

I hit my leg below my knees was swollen. I put ice and wrapped it with a bandage for a week. Now I look at my foot on the side of my foot is purple?

Bandaging can do: That. I find this happens often wafter doing surgery on one part of the foot and after removing the bandage there is purple in another part of the foot. I think the bandaging possibly causes blood vessels to break or leak and the blood spilling causes the black and blue marks. No worries should disappear soon. ...Read more

Hello,: Hello, it sounds like you might have both contusions and abrasions. I suggest elevating your feet and applying ice to help wtih possible swelling. Please clean the scrapes out very well and consider use of antibiotic ointment. Sterile bandages or dressings would also be helpful. If the wounds become hot, red, have drainage, or there is red streaking of fever, then you likely have an infection. From the way this injury is described there sounds like potential for some nasty stuff to have entered your skin - so you should check your tetanus status as you may need a tetanus shot. ...Read more

I was stung on the side of my leg between my knee and ankle yesterday and today my foot is so swollen that I can't wear shoes. Is this normal?

I was stung on the side of my leg between my knee and ankle yesterday and today my foot is so swollen that I can't wear shoes. Is this normal?

Can be: The sting was above the ankle - the body shifts fluids to the area in response to the venom to help your body heal. Gravity pulls the fluid down into the lower leg/foot. Your swelling sounds pretty profound. Consider getting an MD to check it out - especially if issues like diabetes.

Foot is blue leg is cold up to the knee cap pin and needles in my foot I can see spiderweb veins in leg foot and calf swollen. Sprained one month ago?

Get it checked ASAP.: Two possibilities come to mind. If you have a blood clot in your calf, your leg could look like that. Have it checked out immediately, because blood clots can go to the lungs. If it is not a blood clot, it could be CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome). This also needs to be seen soon as it can turn into a major pain problem. ...Read more

I have pain in my hip, knee, foot and my foot is swollen and numb. I found out that someone that went on a trip with me has staph infection. What now?

Not enough info: It would be unusual for a systemic Staph infection just from casual contact. I would consider other options, include reactive arthritis, crystalline arthritis (gout/pseudogout). It doesn't seem like the information given is going to help us pinpoint why you have this. Any recent new sexual partner or risk for gonorrhea? Where was trip? Lumbago with sciatica can lead to pain in those areas. ...Read more
