Bump on leg and thigh. Swollen. Any idea what this is?

I have woken up the past couple of days with a bump on my leg that looks like a bite. It is in a different place every morning and only on one leg. It is also only on my thigh. I changed my sheets and inspected the mattress and saw nothing. I also went home from college and slept in my bed there and still woke up with a new bump. The one this morning that I woke up with is now very swollen, at least 2 quarters in size. Any idea what this is?

Hi there,
It seems like you are having Papular Urticaria, which is a type of urticaria caused by insect bite or even by the left overs of the insects like fur on their wings or on the body.
So thats not a seriouse problem.
I would suggest you to start using
1: tablet loratidine 10mg once a day for seven days
2: 1% Hydrocortisone cream on the affected areas one to two days for seven days.
And hopefully it will settle down.
All the best.
