Your letter to the bugman:  I found this drawing in my skin after feeling a sting.
I think it came from the yard or garden. It’s very small. Maybe 2mm. Smaller or similar size as an ant.

Thrips, possibly

Dear Allergic to everything,
Because of its small size and general shape, we believe this might be a Thrips.  Here is an image from BugGuide.  According to BugGuide:  “Thrips can often be found on flowers, they are especially visible on light colored flowers like daisies. Be aware that though they are very tiny, they can give a slightly painful bite.”
