What is this dark thing poking out of my forearm?
 
Hi,

I live in Canada and recently spent 2 weeks on the Big Island in Hawaii. Over a month ago, on one of my hikes, I noticed a small little dark bump on my forearm and thought it might be a tick so I started Googling and learned to watch out for a bullseye pattern that could be a sign of Lyme disease. That never happened, so I forgot about it until now. It doesn't feel different then any of part of my arm and isn't itchy or anything.

I was wondering if I should just try yanking it out with tweezers or if I should see someone (a dermatologist or family doctor I guess?) to get it checked out since it's apparently been there for at least 5 weeks now.

After poking around online, I suspect it could just be an ingrown hair. Thoughts?
