Maybe a blackhead...: Whiteheads are pores covered by a thin layer of skin cells. Thus, oils and white blood cells that react to oils (or to acne bacteria in the oil gland) are stuck just under the surface of the skin. The result is a whitehead. It's possible for them to "turn into" blackheads if the thin layer of cells got scrubbed away with washing, allowing the trapped comedone to darken upon exposure to air oxygen. ...Read more

You have not asked: A question but I assume you want to know what the black spot is? This is probably a blood blister caused by your trauma to the tissues.

Blackhead: It sounds like you had a clogged pore or blackhead. When you scratched it, the bacteria normally on your skin were able to make their way underneath and cause a mild infection. This was the white pus that you noted. If it does not resolve completely, you should see your doctor. A picture is always helpful when trying to diagnose a skin problem. ...Read more

I think my hubby may been bit by brown recluse. It is scaly and black dot in middle. Pls what do u think?

Within a few hours, there is usually severe pain, and area becomes more inflammed and thick. Within 24 hrs, it becomes a big blister. Clean area with cool water and soap, apply ice pack to area, keep at rest. If above changes occur, see doc. ...Read more
