Spot on calf, sharp pain while sitting, small white dot, mild swelling. Treatment?

My son has a spot on his calf . He thinks something bit him about two days ago, he remembers a sharp pain shooting up his calf while sitting on the couch. it is a small white dot with a red ring around it, raised slightly in the center. It feels tight in that area and he says it hurts even when not being touched although it is not very swollen.

It seems that due to some insect bite there is rash and now some infection took place giving rise this problem.
Go for one course of antibiotic medicine course after consulting your doctor to over come infection.
Give him anti histamin like Benadryl or cetrizine.
Ok and take care.
