In brief: Various bugs if itch

Various bugs can leave a tiny, almost invisible, hole in the skin.
The bite area should be a bit raised, into a welt. It should be itchy and a little reddened. If there is a tiny hole in the skin with no reaction around it, it may just be a skin pore plugged with a comedone (a clump of old skin cells), which is fairly common and is one of the causes of acne.

In brief: Arthropod Assaults

There are many bugs which love the human skin.
One of a dermatologists most important tools is his eyes. That means that it is necessary to see these spots to make a diagnosis of what actually happened to the skin. Some bugs or arthropods as we call them, actually do leave a mark in the skin, but again it's necessary to see the patient.
