Brief Answer:
Seems to be due to tick bite. Please do not take it lightly.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone through the description and have checked the attached image. It does not seem to be due to a rash; rather, it seems to be due to a tick bite. I would insist you not to ignore it. Visit a doctor and get a clinical evaluation done. Treatment will depend on the findings.

A tick bite really? Would said tick have just bitten me or possibly be in my leg around area affected?

Brief Answer:
Tick bites can occur on legs

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. It is hard to comment like that. There is a difference between clinical examination and looks alone but going by the looks, the structure of the lesion resembles that of a tick bite.
