Can be similar: Brown recluse bite usually doesn't hurt while the zit does. Also there is bulls eye in the center of the bite.
If not sure see a doctor. Either way, if it's a bite you might need proper wound care as the center of the bite will become dead and leave a temporary hole in the skin. So good wound care is important.
