In brief: BIG BRUISE ON LEG

UNFORTUNATELY, WITHOUT SEEING THIS BRUISE I CANNOT TELL WHAT IT CAN BE.
PLEASE SEE YOUR PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR FOR THIS VERY SOON. BEST LUCK!

In brief: Insect bites

People react differently to insect bites.
It sounds like you had some sort of insect bites then had a big inflammatory reaction to it. Use some cool compresses on it and hydrocortisone cream if it is itchy. It should clear up on its own.
