Could be minor...: Dermatology is all about appearance. I am guessing it is an erythematous papule ("red bumpy"), which honestly could be an insect bite, or contact dermatitis, both of which are common. However you mention pregnancy; there is a condition called PUPPP: Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, which are terribly itchy red bumps! See what the dermatologist thinks! ...Read more

Interesting.: The problem may be from a couple of things. Dehydration can cause leg pain. Taking supplements such as creatine can cause leg pain. Overweight can cause leg cramping. Drinking alcohol causes pain. If its not red and swollen, then its not infected. It has to be with something in your lifestyle that you are doing too much of, or not enough of something else. ...Read more
