I felt a pinch on my back of the thigh

Patient : I felt a pinch on my back of the thigh near the thigh crease on Wednesday night as I was exiting the car. I noticed a raised welt and pain immediately but couldn't find anything to have caused it in the seat. On Thursday, my leg hurt and the area was far more red. The pain went away with pain reliever (ibuprofen). On Friday I was unable to sleep later than 5 am (unusual for me) I took pain reliever again. The area is red but not hot. With the exception of pain, I have no other symptoms. There is no itching
Symptoms:  Insect bite
Red, swollen
Pain, stinging
