I have black itchy bump on upper abdominal region. What is it ?

Honestly could not find a generic community for selection: I was actually browsing with questions about a very small itchy bump/scap initially ...... me scratching it and it definitely being a scabbed area and the fact I keep picking the scab off. The area is not real large, but the scab is black and obviously a recessed thickend scap after being removed so many times. This is on my upper stomach (on the side).
