Pink circle on my face?

I have this small pink circle on my face, about 1cm in diameter. It's not raised or dry. It doesn't bother me at all but I'm curious to what it is. It looks as if I had lipstick stain on my face. It's easily covered by concealer but I don't think it's a reaction to anything either. I have had it before, stayed for about a moth or so and then disappeared. Now, a month later it returns in the exact same spot. Any ideas what it is?

Hi there,
Without a medical evaluation it is difficult to determine the exact cause. Pimples and blemishes can leave red or pink-colored marks on the face. Allergic rash, dermatitis are few possibilities. In Pityriasis alba there are ill-defined, scaly, faintly erythematous patches that subside to leave areas of hypopigmentation.Pityriasis rosea and Tinea versicolor are few other possibilities. A clinical examination and work up can confirm the exact cause. Get it checked by a dermatologist. Keep us posted.
Take care and regards!
