Bruise on the inner forearm with with white spot in the middle. Bug bite?

Several days ago I noticed a round bruise on my inner right forearm , about 1/2 way between my wrist & elbow . It s about 2 wide with a white spot in the middle of about a 1/2 . I don t recall hitting my arm against anything and the spot does not hurt at all. I ve been told that it could be a bug bite but I don t see any sort of marking that look like a bite. Also, it seems to have faded a bit over the past few days.

thanks for posting your query.
The fact that it is getting faded seems to be due to insect bite allergy.
this need not be bed bug but can be any type of insect
All you need is to apply simple white vasaline which can soothen the skin.
If the rash is not better in two weeks you can try mild steroids like hydrocortisone cream twice a day for two weeks only
Have a nice day
