Bug bite on leg, itchy, white pimple. What is going on?

Hi. I ve recently noticed after waking up, I have what looks like some kind of bug bite on my leg. It will itch for a little bit, but then it stops. A couple hours later, the bite turns into what seems to be a white headish pimple . I only get these after I have been sleeping. Do you have any clue as to what may be going on?

Hi there. Please do check your bed & bedding materials & vicinity. It appears to be some sort of insect bite reaction to bed bugs/ fleas/ dust mites on your bedding materials/quilt /surroundings. You may want to use an insecticide in the area & keep all your bedding et al in the SUN to air for awhile as also be vigilant with your laundry. For the skin lesion per se, try to use a topical hydrocortisone-salicylic acid 3% combination cream on the spot twice/daily for 2-3 days. Hope this helps. If not, do visit your local dermatologist for a hands-on advice.cheers!
