Bicep has a mark. With scabs and bumps and hard to touch. What could it mean?

Hello, I have one spot on the back of my right arm (bicep) about a dollar size that becomes warm, tingly and itchy every once in a while. Maybe 2-3 times a year I get this and lasts about a week. It is super itchy and tingly however no scabbing, bumps or any other topical change except for warmth/hot to the touch. What could this be?
