In brief: Bug bite

sounds like a bug bite with residual inflammation.
Try applying hydrocortisone ointment twice a day for several days and see if it goes away. If not away in 1 week. see pcp

In brief: Bump on skin

May be infection1 inch is large Does it hurt/ becuase it may need to be opened and pus removed and antibiotics given.
Alternatively could be allergic reaction to bug/environment but at 1 inch would still give antibiotics .would go to urgent care /doctor and have it checked out. today
