Bites near ankle, red and itchy. What is the pus?

About 2 weeks ago I woke up (after having been outside all day and night) with many small bites near my ankes and on my calves. They were small, reddish and very itchy. They are still present but now very small, mostly flesh colored but appear to have a small amoutn of liquid or puss underneath. What could this be?
