The backs of both my knees are swollen after a hike. When I first noticed this, I thought I got bitten by a mosquito or a bug. So, I applied After Bite to the area a little bit. The redness was reduced the next day but, it is still swollen. I see a lump right behind the knees. I can comfortably walk but, the area is very slightly itchy. It has been for four days. I have never experienced something like this. So, I am worried. Should I just wait for a couple of days to see if the lump disappears? Is there any treatment you could recommend? If I need to go see a doctor, which specialist's office will I have to visit? Please help.

Thanks for your reply. I have attached two images of the back of my knee. Both the images are of the right side. The left side of the knee looks similar to this.
