Dermatitis: Most likely a contact dermatitis from something that was in contact with your legs or possibly a lotion that was put on your legs. See a health provider if it worsens or persists.

Dermatitis vs. Hives: Could be dealing with either contact dermatitis or hives. Sometimes hives, especially cholinergic urticaria can look like small bumps rather than typical large wheal and flares. See Dermatologist or Allergist for further workup and evaluation. In the meantime can try OTC antihistamines and hydrocortisone cream.
