Need Treatment For Swollen Knee Cap

Hello, I have a swallow muscle above my knee cap ( I don’t fell the pain) but it is swallow you can see the difference from the other knee. I have applied some regular cream on it. I believe is the Quadriceps Tendon or Vastus medialis muscles, any suggestion how to treated this? And I do run after works sometime not regularly but during the week I ran maybe two to three times.

Hello,

Should apply ice or cold compresses on the swollen knee cap. Apply antiinflammatory cream locally. Massage with essential oil.

Sometimes, wrapping with chopped onion with salt can reduce the swelling.

If not, should see orthopedic specialist as might need to run MRI and other investigations to determine the right cause, and appropriate treatment.

Wish fast recovery.
