Red and white spot on arm. Is it an burn? See a doctor?

I have a red mark with a white center that showed up the other day on my arm . It looked like a burn , with a worse burn in the middle, flaking skin. However, I think it has grown a little. It was very tender (like a burn would be) the first evening I noticed it. It hasn t hurt since. The white skin in the middle is flaking off in the shower. I can t say for sure it has grown, but it seems a little bigger. How long should I watch it, or should I watch for anything else before making an appointment to see a doctor?

From history it appears that you might be having some poisonous insect bite giving rise to this problem.
Go for one antibiotic course and take some antihistamine like Cetrizine.
Apply triple acting cream locally.
Ok and take care.
