Knee discomfort from last 3 months

Patient : 3 months back i played badminton barefoot for quite a long time and from that day onwards my right knee started giving small pain (discomfort). The location of the pain i cannot identify as i feel discomfort all around the knee. ( but i think the origin of the pain is below the kneecap and on the tibia bone.) I had applied some local ointments but it has not help my cause. I fear it is something more than the normal pain. What should be the cause of the pain and how i can get relief from this pain. Also suggest any exercises for this kind of pain. Please help
