Bump on knee, red around edges, dry white skin on top, no itching or pus
Hi I have a half cm in diameter bump that red around the edges and dry skin white on top, it sticks out about 2 mm. It doesn t bother be or itch but I would like to know how to get it off. It s on the inner part of my right knee . Also, I ve tried picking at it, not knowing what it was and no puss comes out, it just starts bleeding . Thank you.
Hi It could be infected small sebaceous cyst. It is red due to infection and associated inflammation. do not press it. Please consult a surgeon/ dermatologist and get it removed completely. It is a simple procedure. Regards
