Mysterious bruise on my leg has me worried

Edited , 2 users are following.

For the past 4-5 days I had noticed my leg hurting but I didn't think anything of it, until yesterday I was wearing shorts and someone asked me what the bruise was from on my calf which suprised me as I hadn't noticed it. It doesn't really hurt much, it looks like something might have bit me but I don't know what that could have been as bugs like that aren't popular in England. I'm worried it could be something bad, or worse than a big bite. I have attached an image, if anyone has any advice that would be amazing, or any idea what could have caused such a bruise. Also, if anyone has a mote questions

    It looks a bit like a wasp or bee sting and that would hurt but not itch. Just keep it clean and dont pick at it. If your leg should go red and puffy then see your doctor.. that may be an infection that needs treatment.
