In brief: Antibiotic cream

Depending on the extent of the infection, if it is just local, then antibody cream or ointment would be very appropriate.
If the infection is more extensive than you may need antibiotics. If it is deep into the kneecap then the pus would have to be evacuated as well as the use of antibiotics.
