Small bump near belly button. Was it bug bite? Help

I had a small bump right next to my belly button that itched like crazy. At first I thought it was a bug bite . But it turned into a small pimple like bump and it just popped while I was in the tub. Now it has a little hole on it and it still itches like crazy. I did also use clippers about 3 weeks ago to trim that area. What could this be?

Hi i think small bump on the belly button is nothing but u used calipers to remove the of the hair follicles have been embedded into the skin causing folliculitis.the pain is mainly due to injury of calipers hence a red spot is present inside

Use of broad spectrum antibiotic.atarax 25mg in the night time and application of t-bact ointment on the lesion can cure it
