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.

This could be an indication for a viral infection. I would take him to a Dermatologist or a Podiatrist for an examination, which may require a biopsy to confirm the Dx.

When irritation and inflammation has subsided, pigment may have been lost from the skin if the pigment-containing cells (melanocytes) are damaged or destroyed. This is called postinflammatory hypopigmentation
