Insect bites on my legs, they swell up to the size of a pint glass making it painful to walk. Am I allergic to them? Not had this reaction before?

In brief: See a dermatologist

Not an allergist.
You assume these to be insect bites, and some people have exaggerated reactions to mosquitoes, but this is suspicious for something else. You need to begin with a precise definition of the problem so you will be able to get help.
