I got bit by an unknown insect and overnight it formed an itchy rash. 2 weeks later it's no longer itchy but the mark is still there. Concerned?

Nope: Anytime you get an inflammatory response in the skin, there may be residual healing including coloration changes. They fade with time. The length of time depends on the individual. If that is the only symptom you have, it will fade away with time. The body is the healer. Sometimes it takes longer to get back to normal.

Pityriasis: Your description is consistent with a recurrence of pityriasis. The lesion you describe sounds like the herald patch, a very common sign of the rash.
