Round red mark on the bottom of leg, itching goes after scratching, no bugs. What can this be due to?

For the past few nights my husband wakes up with a round red mark toward the bottom of his leg. I sleep in the same bed and dont have any marks. Once he scratches it no longer itches. We ve checked the bedding and mattress and have not found any bugs. What could the marks be from?

After reading your history it appears that you might have developed allergic dermatitis to some contact allergen. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area otherwise these areas are very prone for getting secondary infection. You can apply an steroid cream such as cortisone cream.
If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Apply a plenty of moisturizers over the affected area.
