Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

A itchy rash behind the knees is more likely to be eczema,which is a chronic skin condition.In this case ,bacitracin ointment won't treat it.
I would suggest to try hydrocotrisone cream twice a day for 1 week.If the rash doesn't seem to improve ,you may need to consult your physician and get it checked.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question.

Kind regards,
Dr.Rovena Murati
