Spot on leg, burning sensation, dark red with brown pigmentation, sensitive if rubbed. Treatment?

I got a spot on my leg that felt like it was burning and even my jeans felt like it was hurting it. When I checked it, it was light red and looked irritated so I didn t think anything of it, a couple of days later it turned into an acute red color but it shrank down to about 1 by 2 spot and there are darkish(slightly brown pigmentation in the center it s not swollen or itchy, but sensitive if rubbed. What could this be and should I get it checked?

Hi..I m dr manoj...U didnt mention ur age and any medical hstory like diabetes, thyroid...let it could be anything like from contact dermatitis to bacterial or fungal infection...discoid eczema is quite common on the lower legs..i recommend a plain antifungal cream for 7 days...if your symptoms do not improve then u can go ahead using a combination of mild topical steroid with antibiotic...
For the definitive diagnosis proper examination is required so its better that u get it checkwd by a local dermatologist
