About a week ago I was in bed and it felt like something bit me behind my knee,I looked and did not see anything.It is now about the size of a 50cent it is red and white/yellow in the middle it looks kinda like puss in the middle and it hurts.I don't know for sure that I was bit,because I didn't see anything.Could there be anything else to maybe do this?I don't know if I should go to the ER or wait until Monday to see my Dr.,it seams to be getting worse.What do you thank I should do?Do you have any idea's to what this might be? Thank you
