    Itchy bug bite with a red splotchy ring and a white center, no pain. Live near the woods. What could it be?

Hello! We live close to the woods, so we are pretty buggy here. My daughter has a quarter sized bug bite on wrist . Red splotchy ring around a white center. White center has a whole in it that is long like a fingernail puncture, not a pinprick. The whole looks kinda blackish. She says it hurts, not itches. What can this be? Brown recluse? They are very bad here.

Welcome to healthcare magic,
It could be a spider bite or lyme's disease due to tick bite. I will advice you to see a doctor.
Hope this helped
Take care
