In brief: Doctor can evaluate
Spots can be due to allergic, viral, or fungal causes.
Sometimes spots are sensitive skin eczema, or due to aging or sun exposure. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist (skin doctor) should look at it if it doesn't go away, or it worsens, with simple treatment. Simple treatment of an itchy spot means trying over-the-counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream three-times-a-day for about 5 days.
