Bumps on legs, itching, swelling, keep appearing suddenly. Causes and cure?

For a few days now, Ive been getting bumps, that look almost like bug bites on my leg. They itch and swell like mosquito bites but they re only on one leg and there are no mosquitos around here. Ive checked for bed bugs as well and didn t find any. They keep popping up on my leg where ever i go and i dont understand whats causing them. Id just like to know if you have any idea what these could be and if theres a remedy for them because they itch and hurt like crazy.

Hi there ~

It is a nuisance to have bumps on your legs that itch and have swellings that appear constantly. One reason could be contact dermatitis which is due to walking in grass or other substances that you are allergic to. Allergic dermatitis is quite common and is easily treated with anti-allergic medications. I hope this helps. And yes, if it itches, do not scratch, you are only going to make it worse. Take care and have a nice day !
