Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
I am suspecting insect bite as it is a single red sore. I suggest application of calamine which will soothe the itchy sore and take Tab atarax three times daily which will reduce the redness and inflammation. Avoid scratching as there is chance of bacterial infection if touched repeatedly. Thanks.
