Hot flushes constantly. Also,battling with severe knee pain at rest which constantly wakes me during the night. Hot & cold during night. What is it ?

Clearly

Knee_pain
You are going thru menopause. Possibly some arthritis of knees. Sounds like you need to see the gynecologist and orthopedist. Bring a good book for the waiting rooms.

1yr old boy has hot knees. Like, they are red and hot to the touch? It's been like this for a few months now. Is this weird? Or not?

See a pediatrician

While this could be nothing, even just related to crawling, there is a type of juvenile onset rheumatoid arthritis and a couple other inflammatory issues you should rule out. See your pediatrician and just ask them to take a look and do an exam and they will most likely be able to see and feel if it looks inflammatory or not. If there is any pain, make the appointment as soon as possible.

Several possibilities. If there are no other areas of complaints. See an Orthopaedic. to find the cause. Both knees painfull and swollen is not normal. The Dr will check alignment, joint health and can advise on exercise options.

Dr. Julie Reardon answered:

When I run and stand for too long my knees burn on the inside ,get red all around my knee and a bit on my thigh and feel hot to the touch?

Inflammation

Burns
If knees burn and turn red that often indicates irritation or inflammation at the place being stressed by gravity or position. Strengthening of upper leg muscles may help. Also healthy diet with lots of veggies can reduce tissue inflammation. If multiple places around body get repeatedly red or irritated, it's worth being evaluated.

I have had burning red hands and feet for 3 weeks even hot to touch, now they are not hot but the skin is peeling as well as from knees and elbows?

Dermatitis

Skin
Your symptoms certainly warrant an evaluation by a Dr. A dermatologist specializes in skin conditions and it appears you definitely have some dermatitis that may be caused by several different factors, such as a contact irritant, an underlying Psoriatic condition possible, etc. best wishes.
