Hi there. Is there brusiing on one leg only..where exactly? was there any preceding trauma..even accidental or minor? Do you recall an insect/spider bite or is this possible? Is it possible to upload a good clear photo of the area? this will help!
Most likely an insect bite reaction & will subside with the application of a hydrocortisone butyrate cream that your pharmacist may be able to give you over the counter. Cheers & Good luck!
