What do lumps and inflammation on the legs indicate?

Ok hi I don t know if this is real or not, but yesterday after walking my dog outside I got inside to find that my legs were red and have huge skin colored lumps on them. I looked it up and it says it s cold hives? But when I looked it up on pictures it didn t look like what I had. I wish I could send u a picture. It was 0 degrees farenheight outside

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If the lumps appear in a day then it will be usually allergic. You might have stepped on something irritating or something might have bitten inside your shoe to cause you this if it is red or itchy then it's definitely that.

You can use any antihistamine tablets if you are so worried or if you leave this for two days then it will just disappear. If it is still spreading or something then you can reconsider it and can go to a dermatologist. Or else, for now, nothing to worry at all.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
