Does anyone know what this bite could be from?

I got bit the other day right behind my ear from something that I didn't see. It was itchy and bubbled up within minutes. I put activated charcoal, thieves oil, and vinegar on it before it could get really bad. The swelling went down within the hour. I was thinking it might be a mosquito and it got so big because it was thinking, sensitive skin. Any other suggestions??
