Get that looked at: Any infection on the skin from a puncture wound by an insect or animal which is becoming red, swollen, and hot to the touch is potentially showing the initial signs of an infection. What you don't want it to be is a MRSA type of infection so you'll want to get ahead of this thing quickly. Clean the area with soap and water at least 2-3x daily until you see the doctor and stay well hydrated. ...Read more

Sometimes we don't find a cause for this and it is called idiopathic urticaria, Check with you primary doc and discuss the symptoms further. It is can be treated with antihistamines. ...Read more

Many causes: Rashes are challenging even when the doctor can see them, so even harder in this forum. Small red bumps on both legs make me think of reactions to clothes, or something in contact with that area on both sides. Bites can do it. It could be heat rash, a reaction of the skin to warmth and occlusion from pressure. Some drug reactions can do that as can conditions like eczema and psoriasis. ...Read more
