I can't diagnose anything that might be on you or in your skin. I would recommend that you go see a dermatologist for that.

If you can get an image of the insect, then I would be better be able to help you. There are numerous small flies that can be indoors. You can go here to download a indoor fly publication that may help you with identification & control:
