Dark red patch on the leg, increasing in size, itching and pain only after shower. What is it?

My boyfriend has a dark red patch on his leg. It seems to be getting bigger. He says it doesnt hurt or itch until after he gets out of the shower. It started out about the size of a quarter and now its about the size of five. in the middle there is a purplish tint. It also has a few bumps near the edge. Any help as to what this might be?
