Bruise on the arm with dizziness. Insect bite?

I noticed what appears to be a bite while showering this morning. It s on the inside of my right arm . It s a round, purple bruise about 1 inch in diameter, but in the middle of the bruise is a white center and a tiny red dot. The red dot feels like a tiny splinter. There are no other symptoms except I feel a little dizzy and more tired than usual
