As you mentioned mercurochrome is culprit it seems to be idiosyncrasy is it only on knee or elsewhere on the body As i feel it could be related to unsterlised cotton bandage applied tightly Area is indurated and has few blebs Deroof the blisters Antiallergic Antiinflamatory Antibiotics Are to be continued Local application of fucibact or flutibact oint sparing abrasions. Keep rest to knee.
Thanx dr Pushkar ji Bhomia
