Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you.
Can it be that you had contact with poison ivy?

I also have ischeamic heart disease
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 2 years ago.
The heart disease is not responsible, and an allergic reaction to medication normally affects back and belly, not only a single part of the leg.
I suggest you try cortsione cream to eas the itching and swelling, and cool down the leg with cold compresses.
Most probably you had contact to a poisonous plant or were bitten by insects like sandflies.
