Essentionally I was icing my leg and when I was done I felt this burning behind my knee where I'd been icing. I looked to find the blister looking ring. Within a half hour the rased blister part went down and the entire rash turned red. There was no bulls eye or rings or cut in the center and it was about 1.5 inches and did not grow. about 24 hours later it was gone.
 
I am being treated with antibiotics for one month and feel fine. The doctor wasn't sure knor am I. Any opinions are very much welcomed.
 
Thanks,
 K

Kb,

In my opinion, it looks like a blister. Were you icing the top of your knee or the bottom?

I had been training for a sprint triathlon and was icing top and back becasue it was a bit swollen. When I pulled the ice pack off I felt burning and this appeared.

Yeah, I thought so. You probably got a blister from the ice being so cold.
