Hi there Savanna

This seems an unusual presentation to be so casual about. How long has this been going on for? Is it painful? What profession are you in & has this something to do with any hobbies & does your smoking include a hubbly bubbly or any such heat emmitting device or contraption or are you exposed to excessive ammounts of heat for eg in the kitchen/furnace at work?

However, Dermatology is a visual line & as such, one would prefer a clear digital image of the lesion & you may upload it on this site using the upload data icon to the right of your screen.

This particular presentation may require a skin biopsy & as such the attentions of a dermatologist nearest you.

It is difficult to hazzard a guess or suggest a treatment unless one gets to see this in person even if in the end, it may be a mundane entity & relax there is nothing to worry about!

Wish you a clear skin soon..take care. Cheers!
