I have 2 black dots which look like a bite on my leg and its swollen, what is this?

Infection vs allergy: If it is a bite then the swelling could be either infection or an allergic response to the bite. If the swelling happened quickly and it itches then it is more likely a localized allergic reaction. If it is tender and the swelling happened slowely then it could be infected. A blood clot is always a possibility with swelling on only one leg but that is not associated with a bite. ...Read more

Best of luck. ...Read more

It : It sounds like a skin abscess (bacterial infection under the skin). Often times antibiotics don't work because they can't penetrate the infection. In a case such as this he should visit a doctor. A procedure called an incision and drainage will likely be done. The area will be opened and drained. Antibiotics will then work and continue to heal the infection. Best of luck. ...Read more
