I have been dancing for 11 years and I tend to get many bruises on my knees, mainly my right knee. And I've noticed for a long time now I have bumps on my right knee cap that feel like I have 5-10 little pebbles underneth my skin. Is this normal?
I started rubbing my knee and noticed a couple small bumps under the skin and on top of my knee cap, it almost feels like a bead under my skin, and it hurt very bad to touch it. It is on my left leg and floats around the top of my knee cap when I touch it what do i do?
2 Days later I noticed a small pimple(reddened with with little white pimple and hair coming out) on my knee cap and weeks later I had it on both knees. Now I was also working very late and wore some new type of pants which did not have good material and were not as loose fitting as normal. But in my head I still think I got something by touching the stripper with my hands.
it started with just 1 bump above my knee cap. but the bump has seperated into teenie tiny bumps and hav over 7 YEARS relocated to beneath my knee cap my left knee has began process over the past 2 years im a 19 year old female and this began in the 6th grade for me and my doctor said it would go away in 6 months - 1 year its began to be VERRY painful in my right knee and all around my knee up to about my mid thigh down to above my calf it shoot through my knee when i lift my leg.
A couple of days later I had an itch on my knee cap which quickly developed into a red rash with a few scabs. There has been no itching or discomfort and the rash is now about 2 weeks old and healing. A week later, another similar rash with bumps showed up on my right knee and a few clusters on my arms and hands. There has not been any oozing, paint or itching. Could I have gotten herpes from viral shedding?
I have these flat bumps on my knee. It started off as three of them basically as one about the size of a pen cap and now I have smaller ones around my knee cap and those are about the circumference of a Q-tip stick. I have a single one on my chin as well. I don't know what they are.
I've had recurring bumps on my hands for several years, and can't figure out why. They are quite small, roundish, but not symetrical, and do not contain any sort of liquid. They are not itchy or really sore, but are sensitve. When I get a breakout, the bumps are always in the same spot. It started out just on my fingers and hands, but it seems to affect larger areas with each breakout. This last time, it also affected my elbows and one knee cap.
The bump itself is totally on the side of the knee cap although 3/4 of an inch below the top of the knee cap. Self Observations: I have noticed that if I spend about an hour trying to stretch out the knee and the calf that the pain substantially subsides for 4-6 hours. It is extremely painful to stretch, but is effective at diminishing the pain throughout the day. When I sleep I have noticed that if I put a firm object behind my knee cap the pain will subside enough for me to sleep.
I have a rash of bumps on and around my knee cap for several years...it consists of bumps that are skin colored and slightly raised above the surface of the skin. They do not itch and they are not painful. My boyfriend recently asked if I should have them checked out in case they were a form of skin cancer. Do you have any suggestions what they may be before I make an appointment with my regular medical doctor?

When I kneel deeply the left knee only hurts. I can't turn with the same force and just can't put as much pressure on that leg consequently. First opinion said x-rays are fine so she sent me to a phys. therapist. That worked a little I guess but there's more going on than that's going to solve. Tried going back to the gym to isolate that leg and it just hurts too much to put even half as much weight on that leg. The doctor in Portland is a different Dr.
I've also noticed that now I have three tiny bumps on my elbow just now and also ONE little bump on my knee cap. This is driving me absolutely insane. It's getting to the point where I've researched bed bugs and flees and yada yada yada so then I always think i feel something crawling on me so I hurry and look and there's never anything to be found. I don't really have time to head to the doctors office so I'm hoping that someone may have an answer for me.
Good morning, My husband has two bumps on his knee cap that have puss in them. When he popped the first one it filled back up with puss and now is twice the size and hurts. Has anyone had similar situations? If so what can we do?
It never itched again and then a week later another red bumpy area appeared on my right knee with many red bumps down my knee. I had several clusters of red dots on my arm. None of them every hurt me or itched. I saw a dermatoligist and a regular doctor 10 days into it, but they weren't concerned it was hurpes. I am very paranoid that is why I didn't have sex with a women who I know was promiscious but I was intimate with her. Could I have received herpes through her viral shedding?
A couple of days later I had a blistery itch on my knee cap which turned into a red bumpy rash. It did not bother me. I believe I had leg pains. A week later red bumps and a clustery red looking area appeared on my right knee and I had some red bumps on my arms here and there. I am awaiting blood tests, but I believe I received herpes from viral shedding. Is this possible considering the scenario.

On 02/25/2007 I stated having red bumps all over mostly on my stomach and legs and back. They look like i got bit by bug bites all over. Then it has spread all over my body but the ones on my stomach have just a little all over. They itch like crazy but they are not dry or flaky and they are not open or bloody. Most of them look exactly like bug bites. Any ideas what I might have.

Currently, I still have multiple itchy events throughout the year and I've been applying Betasone Cream on the areas and it will usually subside very quickly in a few hours after I apply the cream.

On my lower right leg, just below the knee on the inside. I thought either I peed on myself or a dog did it was that warm. It lasts for a minute or so and then goes away. Not hot to the touch either. I have relatively tight muscles in my hips/thighs which I'm gettting massages to treat. Hopefully that will help, maybe I'm pinching a nerve down there or something that's mixing up signals.

Hi, Im only 16 years old and i have swollen bumps on my inner thighs...and at first i didnt know what they were..so i would squeeze them just thinking maybe they were like pimples or something?..and then white pus would come out and then blood..but it would still be big, or sometimes nothing would come out..it would just stick further out in the skin. And right now i have about 5 or 6..not very big..maybe sizes of a pea or something?
Could this rash have been something like severe jock itch ( I also noticed a painful pimple on my elbow and one on my knee that looked the same as the kind of pimples that were in my groin), and I still have hsv1 but maybe just got it when I was younger and never had an outbreak? Could it have been jock itch and had a false positive test for hsv1 altogether not having herpes at all?
Tonight as usual I feel the crawling under my skin on my back, knee, and sometimes area. The are all over my head, seems like they are trying to make it into my eyes or mouth.
About a month and a half ago I had some itching my my left leg on the inside of the knee cap. There were several small bumps that looked like mosquito bites. I didn't think anything of it and went to bed. The next day when I got out of the shower I noticed that there were several flat red marks from the middle of the inside of my left kneecap to the upper inside of my left leg. I initially thought it was poison ivy. There is no pain, no itching or burning at all.
