Itching/swelling: This sounds like something you have been in contact with or less likely something you ingested. You can take antihistamines to help and see your doctor who may be able to help with a more exact diagnosis and treatment. But it does sound like an exposure to an allergen. No new medications? All the best. ...Read more

Sounds like eczema: Ankles & behind the knees are common places for eczema. Most of the time, eczema flares in the winter when it's cold and dry, but can flare in the spring & summer. Blisters may be part of eczema or a superinfection with bacteria or even viruses, like herpes. Herpes infection of eczema has little ulcers and is very painful.

Lupus flare: The symptoms you are describing sound pretty severe.

I woke up the other night with 4 what looks like bites but also white so welts but swollen red and itchy but I've had a few on my leg before they alwa?
Hives vs bites: The question is whether these are bites or hives indicating an allergic response to something internal or external. If the welts clear after a day only to appear elsewhere, this would favor an allergic reaction to food,medication,etc rather than insect bites which last several days at each site. Antihistamines relieve hives and the itching of bites. See your MD as needed. ...Read more
Itchy Swollen outer Areas on leg inside of the swelling is red and itchy and sometimes if scratched will erupt into a fluid filled bump or bumps. What could this be??
I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?
Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more
