White dot on cornea

Helllo last night I noticed a small white dot on my eye (please view image) and I was a bit worried. I wear daily contact lenses and last night I was tired and my eyes were feeling dry so I took my contacts out and I noticed the white dot . I am not feeling any pain at all and the eye feels pretty normal . I have had corneal ulcers in the past and they were very painful unlike this . I was also curious about the irritated skin beneath my eye which has been bothering me for at least a month now but the main concern is the the white dot which i dont know if i should see a doctor because i can barely feel it
I would appreciate any help

I tried, but there was no image.  You really should see an ophthalmologist to be sure this is not an ulcer, based on your past history.
