Red, blotchy patches on legs, itching, stinging, yellow discharge. Insect bite?

I have red tiny spotted blotchy patches on my legs in three areas that itch and sting and when I touch them yellow sticky gunk gushes out.. And when I leave them be the gunk hardens over the top of the pumps and can not be washed away. I have not been anywhere near poison ivy for two weeks so I m not sure if it could be some kind of spider bite or another insect. helpp :(

Thanks for posting the qwery.
This seems irritant contact dermatitis or insect bite dermatitis. Proper dermatological evaluation with treatment consisting of topical antibiotic steroid ointment and anti allergic tablets is recommended.
Immediate management of the condition is required for faster healing.

Hope for speedy recovery.
