Thanks for your query.

Swelling and redness is a feature of inflammation and Inflammation usually is seen in allergies , infections and post trauma.

I would like to know some more details on your problem

Did you have any trauma on the affected area ?
Do you see any lesion like a boil , papules etc ?
Is the pain very XXXXXXX or it is superficial?
Did you apply any creams or are you on any medications ?
Do you see any sting marks on the thigh ?

Waiting for your reply.
