I think you need a specialist to look at your leg and diagnose/prescribe. Could you have been bitten by a tick.

Hello , "you really must go see a doctor" Is the best anyone can say to you on here .We cannot diagnose you ..also this is a thyroid site so we no nothing about insect bites but looking at the picture you need to see a doctor quick as something in your blood stream is making your leg swell up ..I hope you decide to take our advice ..please let us know how you got on !
