I developed one small red bump on my left leg near my ankle that turned into a red bruise like mark 24 hours after its onset. What could it be?

In brief: Bug or spider bite

Having a doctor examine it will help determine what it is and starting appropriate treatment can prevent secondary infection.
Good luck!

In brief: Bug bite?

The list here is long.
It could be anything from a bug bite to something like a superficial skin infection. If you have no pain or itching, keep an eye on it. If it persists or worsens, consider seeing your physician.
