She showed it me yesterday.
It's about the size of a pea.
Sore to touch.
Kind of pink and shiny.
Feels quite hard.
Unfortunately,she fell on it yesterday too so it's even more inflamed.I looked at it in daylight today and it's a tiny bit yellowy but it is still quite hard.
I've sent her to school but she does say it feels "stiff".Anyone know what it could be?

no idea what it is.

i was prone to lumps on my knee as a child, but they were bigger. doc checked it and deemed them nothing to worry about.

would take to docs if concerend.

stop panicking, just take her to the doctor after school. It could be a cyst, an infected splinter, a wart, anything.
