Tricky: Dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. I go with the process occurrring (which could be infection or insect mediated) and the location to give clues. Bites, ringworm, even syphillis are possible. Many other possibilities I Psoriasis if it has scaley parts is possible; eczema if itchy. Reactions if you've had an exposure at JUST those locations, but those seem less likely

Hyperpigmentation: Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (pih) is a frequently encountered problem and represents the sequelae of various cutaneous disorders as well as therapeutic interventions. This acquired excess of pigment can be attributed to various preceding disease processes that affect the skin such as infections, allergic reactions, mechanical injuries, reactions to medications, phototoxic eruptions, trauma.

ER: If the redness has not subsided or is increasing go to an ER now as you may have been bitten by something that could cause tissue damage like a brown recluse, as the damage will be more severe the longer you wait to get treatment. The itching may indicate that you are allergic to whatever bit you. Ideally if you could find the spider and take it in to the ER this would be great.

Exam: It may be an infected cyst or a bug bite. If its not better by tomorrow, consider seeing your primary care doctor for a proper evaluation. Hope this helps!
