The onset of itching around the knee can be caused by the following conditions:
Skin irritation due to exposure to chemicals or physical trauma Allergic reactions Atopic dermatitis (eczema) Neurodermatitis Fungal or bacterial infections of the skin Different causes will require different treatments as well, therefore you should check yourself first with your doctor to ascertain the cause of the complaint so that treatment right can be given.
The doctor will ask for a history of complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. Investigations that may be recommended by a doctor are examinations of skin scrapings. If the complaint is caused by skin irritation, the doctor can prescribe anti-irritation creams such as hydrocortisone to overcome them. If the complaint is caused by an infection then the doctor can prescribe antibiotic topical medication that is suitable for the causative organism.
