Red Spot Shin After Running
I was camping & got a red spot on my leg. It's painful, has swelling, itching redness and a lump under the skin. How can I know what it is?
Bug bite: You probably got bitten by a bug of some sort - impossible to tell what sort without seeing it in person. Could also be a small staph infection, or a bite that has become infected. Apply warm soaks 2-3 times/day, but if it doesn't resolve in a few days see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a bug bite on my leg. There's a red spot in the middle, and the area around is red and very swollen and it's painful to walk. Is it infected?
Maybe: Very hard to say without seeing or knowing what the bug is. Most times, a "bug bite" that is not witnessed is a spontaneous cellulitis, which is a superficial infection of the skin and soft tissue. If this was an actual bug bite, it may be reaction to the venom, which would depend on what bug it is (classic is the brown recluse spider bite). See a doctor. ...Read more

I have a bright red spot on my lower leg I noticed two days ago and I'm getting a numb feeling in the back of my knee?
I'm not sure we can: Put these two things together. The red spot is MOST likely a skin condition: eczema, psoriasis, etc. But another cause is allergies, perhaps to a bug bite. Have you been in a tick area? I suppose you must consider Lyme Disease, though this is much less common than many people think. I think the spot and numbness can both be watched; if the spots enlarge/spread or numbness persists, see your Doctor ...Read more
