Based on the photo and your description, the knee is not infected. You should continue to gently cleanse the knee with soap and water on a daily basis. You should continue to apply neoporin or other antibiotic cream and a clean sterile bandage such as a bandaide. Your knee is healing fine.

When I put my foot up (toes towards knee), my achilles hurts. No swelling. Not obese. Don't walk alot. What could it be and what can I do?
Pain or instability: Knees can "go out" for a myriad of reasons. In general, two types of giving out can occur: due to pain and aberrant muscle firing causing "buckling", or ligamentous injury causing mechanical giving way due to the lack of ligamentous constraint. A thorough history and examination by your orthopaedic surgeon will uncover the answer and allow for appropriate treatment. ...Read more
Unstable knee: Degeneration in the knee, excessive fluid (effusion), injury or laxity to the ligament/tendons, weakness of muscles, excessive pain, even lumbar disc disease can cause knee instability and thus sensation or actual "giving-out" wrapping of the knee reduces the "loose-feeling" thus helps you feel more confident in your knee as you walk. I suggest consulting doc for an evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more
Possible arthritis: This may be due to osteoarthritis. In osteoarthritis a term call 'crepitus' often occurs. This is a noise that is due to the friction of bone.

If it is arthritis weight loss and physical therapy can often help. Take care. ...Read more

I was at a softball game and when I went for a slide I slid wrong and on the left side of my knee something doesn't feel right when I walk?
You probably have some contusion, or ligament strain. Studies show that if you are under 55, can walk at least 4 steps, no point tenderness on the kneecap or on the outer side, & can flex your knee to 90 degrees, then there is no need for x-rays. This only means there is probably no fracture, but there maybe damage otherwise. You should go to the ER if symptoms don't improve in 2 days

Would you suggest to use Total Crunch® if I have some knee pain when I walk (especially when going uphill)?
NotWhatCap'nOrdered: Anything that doesn't over-stress the knees (e.g. hyper-flex under stress) should be fine. To quote an eloquent forum commenter: "That machine is absolute trash.
