Knee Itchy But No Rash And Swelling?
my knees suddenly feel itchy. The itching seems to be in the middle of the inside of the knee. There is no rash or swelling around my knee. The itching lasts for a few minutes then goes away on its own. My knees also often crackle when I get up from squatting or doing other activities but without pain. What’s wrong with me?rnThank you in advance
Hi Fadillah, thank you for your question

To determine what the exact cause of your complaint and the severity of the condition, you should consult a doctor directly, yes. Because of the very minimal information and without a direct physical examination, the doctor will find it difficult to make a diagnosis.
What you can do at home include:
Use soap with soft ingredients. Moisturize your knees with lotion or cream, avoid lifting heavy weights, exercise regularly, avoid squatting for too long. you should use a small chair if it is possible to exercise regularly and consume food with balanced nutrition avoid soft drinks, because it will reduce bone density so hopefully this is useful, yes,
