Round spots on the calf muscle, itching. Spots spreading to the head. What could it be?

Hi, I have just noticed small round spots around my calf muscle on my left leg. I have really itchy legs sometimes and the other day I was in the bath and this one spot became incredibily itchy so i itched it as normal but then noticed today teh spots. Obviously noticing them now its in my head that they hurt more, just wondering what it could be?

Thanks for writing in HCM.
The condition can be allergic contact dermatitis, lichen planus, nummular eczema ,purpuric dermatitis etc.Diagnosis cannot be made without visual clue.
Treatment depends on diagnosis.A visit to dermatologist will confirm the diagnosis.A skin biopsy may be required for diagnosis.
Till the time you can take tab.Cetirizine 10 mg twice daily .It willl help in decreasing itching.
Hope this helps.
