Unusual Bite

My first time on here, I have two oval shaped holes on my foot, which i first felt when getting out of the shower a bit like a midge bite, there was no sign of any creatures It didnt hurt but went slightly red and I had no swelling, but now two days later the holes look quite deep,

Wondering whether anyone had any Ideas what could have done it??

      How far apart, roughly, are the holes? Any chance of a photo?

          The mark to the right may have been an attempt/tentative bite? There are a few spiders that could inflict such a bite (re. the 2 ovals) & would usually only do so as a last resort to being crushed...the fact that you haven't suffered any significant syptoms beyond some reddening, would hopefully eliminate any particularly undesirable species.


          This is just a tentative suggestion, without seeing/catching the culprit at the time, it will be virtually impossible to positively identify what did it.
