It's hard to say for sure without seeing it and getting a better history, but any new unexplained skin lesion should be checked by your primary and/or dermatologist. A simple biopsy is sometimes all that is needed to make a determination of its cause. Especially for unexplained lesions that change color, these need to be checked out by a doctor.

He has a hematoma. If skin is not broken, he will be ok

Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine a red spots rash to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are related to medications, but many times they are not. For unusual rashes, a skin biopsy may be done by a dermatologist. Other causes include viral infections, allergies and autoimmune reactions, chemical irritants, bug bites, etc...

Probably unrelated

WHile a knee injury can produce some knee and lower leg swelling, you're other symptoms are unrelated. Go see your primary care physician

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

Itching_all_over
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.

i have developed bright red spots on my lower leg after helping my parents in their yard. I am 41 & never seen this b4. what could it b?

?? poison ivy

Leg
Some people are more sensitive or resistant to poison ivy than others, and it is common for people who had hardly any reactivity when younger to the plant (literally rubbing themselves with poison ivy-- don't try this btw- causes no reaction) to begin to get some sensitivity when older. 40 is an age when this can happen. Especially if rash is itchy you can see an MD for treatment and advice.
