Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on this history, I think that this could be an allergy reaction or a secondary skin infection after mosquito bite.

She stated not the actual leg but the bites themselves are. She looked it up and agreed her symptoms coincided with your diagnosis. Very helpful, thank you!
