    Doesn't look like a bite to me. I'd assume fungus, and get some Lotrimin to use on it. Apply sparingly with a q-tip twice a day, rubbing it in completely.

    If it is fungal, it will take a few days to see improvement, and you should continue treating until the hair re-growth is well established.
