Big circle around the bite with numbness, occasional pain. What could this be?

Hi, Dr. Yesterday morning (after walking my dog) I noticed what looked like a misquito bite on my left thigh.I don t know if I woke up with it or if I got it from a bug when I was walking my dog. I thought nothing of it because it didn t itch or anything else like that. But then I woke up this morning and there s a big red circle around it, approximately 2-3 inches in diameter. It s numb to the touch and occasionally hurts. What could this be?
