It could be an insect bite. Here is a link i saw.

Are you always sad? Someone asked.
(Always is such a long, long time)
I couldn't say. But
If sadness was a sea, I'd drown in it.
(Salty and warm, sadness is.)
(Cold, too. Sometimes)
And I happen to love the sea.


And I watched your words burn tiny holes
into my retinas. Just wide enough to crawl into,
And forget you ever were.

Like it was said, this could just be an insect bite. But, it could also be a hive. Hives can appear as red or white, raised welts on the skin. They can also just come out of nowhere. I wouldn't be worried about this, especially because there was only one bump

Sounds like an insect bite. That's usually harmless but if you notice pus, the spot changes colour (yellow) or more bumps with the same itch then get it checked out

For now - use Germaline, that'll kill germs and help stop it getting infected.

Take care
