A member asked:

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Is there any sign of an insect bite? Could it be an allergic reaction to something that came in contact with your thigh? A patch of cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection requiring oral antibiotics, is usually associated with a burning discomfort rather than itching. Try applying a cortisone type ointment. Observe for spreading redness, other rash and if it develops, see a physician
