Spot on back, bruised, like bug bite. On medication. What was it?

I got a spot on my back last week. It was a hard, red and bruised knot. And it itched a lot but didn t appear to be a bug bite of any sort. I went to the doctor and they told me it was staph. I ve been on medication for it for a week now. The spot is a lot better but another one appeared on the inside of my arm . It s the same symptoms as it was on my back. Now I m starting to think its something else
