3 hard lumps on legs, painful when touched, spread all over legs around knees. What are these ?

I have had 3 hard lumps on my legs, one being the size of a 50cent peice that are like knots that when rubbed or pushed on feel like painful bruises, they have been there for 3 weeks or so, but didn t have any color to them until the past few day. I now have (noticed yesterday) probably 30-40 different sized red lumps(look like I was ate alive by misquettos) all over my legs from around my knees down. They do not itch . They are painful like a bruise. some small some as big as quarters. I did have a body massage Friday so I don t know if that has anything to do with it. I have had venious reflux and the closure procedure done and a vericous vein removed so I ve had those problems with my legs.(I m a hairdresser) What could these red knots that feel like bruises be???

Thanks for writing to us.
The red knots on your legs and the bruises can be related to an allergic dermatitis due to something used during the massage. You can wait and watch for a few days for these lesions to subside spontaneously.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
