Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Is the area red and swollen?
Is it behind the knee cap or behind the knee (backside)?
For the time being apply some cold compress and give her some pain killers.
If the pain does not subside you need to have that area inspected by a pediatrician to find out is what's wrong.
Bloating and pimples have no relation to this event, I suppose.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Hi,
Pimples usually occurs more in oily skin.
Use a face wash regularly and avoid oil based skin creams.
Ask your daughter to take lots of fluids and fruits.
