Appears like bug bite. Red and itch. Warm to touch. Is it a bug bite?

I have an employee who just showed me what appears to be a bug bite . It is red and about an inch in diameter with a center that is white and about 1/2 in diameter. As his heart beats you can see the white center go pink and then white again. It is warm to the touch and he says it itches. He does not recall being bit and says he first noticed it this morning.
