Possible infedtion causing more problems


Q: I have developed a lump in the knee area on the inside of the leg below the knee cap. It doesn't bother me when I walk only if I bend it and then it is very painful. I have had no injury. I also have been having pain in my hip (same side as knee - left) for several weeks the knee pain started in the last few days. I had a cold then developed strep throat which is I was given augmentin. Could all this all be related? I still can't seem to get over the cold still have head congestion. Could it be more of an infection that needs a stronger antibiotic?
