Certain spots on shin, both sides of arms between shoulders and elbow, knot went deeper on pushing causing indentation. Help?

For the past few days, I have noticed certain spots on my shins and both sides of my arms between my shoulder and elbow have very tender spots on them, almost like a bruise . It isn t a bruise because i have not had any type of accidents like bumping them on anything. There is also a pea sized knot under the skin on the right arm between shoulder and elbow, i pushed it in and it made a popping sound, the knot went in deeper to where i cannot feel it anymore. After i pushed the knot in, there is a noticable indention in my arm.

I have studied your case.

skin rash and enlarged lymph node [armpit swelling] suggests possibility of viral illness.

Another possibility of systemic infection leading to skin rash
You may need to investigate in form of complete blood count, ESR, CRP, and if required fine needle aspiration cytology.

You may need clinical examination also to confirm diagnosis.
Till time you can start medication and antibiotic consulting your treating doctor.
