Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Considering the kind of Contact lens hygiene you are mentioning it seems likely you do have an infection. The white dot could be just mucus or your eye drop deposit but there is every chance of fungal growth. I would suggest you to see your ophthalmologist.
You may have to go on antibiotic eye drops on prescription & discontinue contact lens wear temporarily.
