Bug bite?

HI,  forgive my naivity ladies but first time pet mom here.

On Rudi's underside, stomach area, I found a raised bump area, if I had seen it on myself I would think I got bitten by a bug.  I noticed it a couple days ago, and it doesn't look any worse, but doesn't look much better either.

No other symptoms.   Being as she is a dachshund and loves to sniff in the grass and we have so many bees everywhere, I was wondering if she got bit by a bee or something?

Should I be worried?   thanks ladies,          Josie

I'm glad that Rudi responded well to the Benadryl. Just to let you know, two of my dogs have pink, essentially fur-less tummies and they will get mosquito bites on them if we don't spray them down first. We have a gentle spray that is intended to help repel fleas, but it works well for mosquitos, too, so they each have to get a couple of squirts on their stomachs before hanging out in the backyard during our mosquito-heavy months.
