Itchy bite on leg, growing size and itchiness, oozing clear fluid, feeling of goosebumps over the place. Cause?

I had a bite on my leg that woke me up in the middle of the night on Wednesday night because it was so itchy. Thursday day, it got a little bit bigger and it started to hurt more than it itched. Thursday night it got really hard, and swollen, and it started oozing clear fluid. Today, it s much bigger, still swollen, and when you run your fingers over it it feels like it has goosebumps over it. What could this be?

it is probably an insect bite. still u must be sure that it is not a snake bite. if it is insecticide, then take levocetrizine 5 mg daily once before food. try to keep clean that area to prevent super infection.
