Thank you. I have a small spot on the inside of my right arm

Customer Question

thank you. I have a small spot on the inside of my right arm near the elbow that can become intensely itchy. From time to time a small hair will grow in that spot. A few days ago it became itchy again. Then yesterday there appeared what looked like three tiny bite marks. Today there is a fourth mark. When I gently squeezed the marks, a small amount of blood came to the surface. Is it possible to determine what this may be caused by? Thank you.
