Brief Answer:
Take oral v antihistamine drug

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

I have gone through your query. It is difficult to say what it is without examination, so I would suggest you to upload the picture of the spot for better assessment.

Presently I would suggest you to wash it with XXXXXXX warm water and with mild soap like dermadew and apply calamine lotion twice daily.
I would have advised you to take oral over the counter antihistamine like levocet once daily for 3 days to address itching.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
