Itchy bite on leg, hard and swollen, oozes clear fluid. What is this ?

I had a bite on my leg that woke me up in the middle of the night on Wednesday night because it was so itchy. Thursday day, it got a little bit bigger and it started to hurt more than it itched. Thursday night it got really hard, and swollen, and it started oozing clear fluid. Today, it s much bigger, still swollen, and when you run your fingers over it it feels like it has goosebumps over it. What could this be?

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed a nummular eczema.

Your description matches with this.

Apply a steroid lotion like fluticasone,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

Try saline compress.

This will give you some relief.
