Hi,
Thanks for the quick reply. I noticed it yesterday. It's on my butt. It is raised . No itching, no burning, no pain. I think it should have appeared in the last couple months. I didn't have it before.

Thank you. What do I need to keep an eye on? Is it going to go away by itself? It could be on the same spot I used to have a pimple but I am not sure. I just don't see that pimple and that's why I think it could be replaced by that scab.

You just need to observe that whether its increasing in size.

Would it be bad if it increases in size? And should I see a doctor if it does?
