If it is itchy it does sound like an insect bite. I had a huge itchy lump on my arm that was a bite and my gp recommended Anthisan cream. A dab of tea tree oil can also be effective as well.

If it has come up quickly I would think it is unlikely to be anything sinister but if it doesn't seem to be a bite and you are worried I would get it checked out.
