Proper treatment certainly has to know the obvious cause first. Complaints of spots that occur on your knee can be caused by several possibilities such as:
Varicella zooster, commonly called chicken pox. Caused by a virus with symptoms in the form of spots containing clear water or commonly called resilient. Impetigo, a bacterial skin infection. Allergic / irritant reaction to Scabies, an infection caused by S. Scabei which is a parasite. In the form of small spots resembling tunnels, the usual symptoms are very itchy at night. Contact allergy dermatitis / irritant atopic eczema Certainly to distinguish it the doctor must conduct a direct examination of your skin and proceed with relevant investigations such as skin sample examination, poor prick test, dermoscopi examination, burrow ink, and so on.
The treatment you do may not be right so that blisters arise. For more certain treatment of course you should meet directly with a doctor in order to get a complete examination.
For now things you can do are:
Do not scratch the itchy areas. Reddened knees can be compressed using cold water. Do not use towels and clothing at the same time. Avoid triggers if itching occurs due to allergies.
