Brief Answer: Benign skin lesion. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. It is very hard to tell not seeing it. Such lesion is most likely benign skin lesion like hemangioma or just a mole. As long as this lesion does not change its size, does not itch or ache, no irregularity, it is nothing serious. If you want to make sure, please consult dermatologist who is able to examine it with dermatoscope and tell if this needs to be removed or not. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.

Thank you for your reply. The only thing that is strange to me that it feels like it's crusted on top. Is significant?
