I have a red bump on my ear that is painful and has a black dot in the center. Is this a boil or a bite?

See PCP

Ear_swelling
Can be either but the treatment at this stage is the same - clean with peroxide and use topical antibiotics three times a day. See your PCP and s/he will likely also start you on NSAIDs and possibly antibiotics by mouth.

What kind of spider bite causes a black dot in the middle?

Nonspecific.

Spider_bites
Bites from most spiders and insects look pretty much the same - a red bump, sometimes swollen and/or itchy. If there is a black dot in the middle, it might be a bee sting rather than a bite. Check with your doctor to be sure there isn't a stinger or other foreign body in there.

I have a bite on the lower part of my stomach. It is red around the bite with a black dot in the middle. what could it be?

Infected skin cyst?

Sebaceous_cyst
I don't know what is meant by bite. But a black dot in the middle with sorrounding redness could be from a infected skin cyst called sebacious/epidermal cyst. If very small it could be an acne ,as it can come in hairy areas close to lower abdomen. Don't squeeze it as it can cause more infection. Redness indication of inflammation and possible infection. As the size is not clearly statted,go to PCP
