Question: I have a small round thing below my neck and has been here for about 2-3 months, any medication I can use for this? Sometime it's itchy but most of the time it's not. Thanks!

Hi.
Thanks for the query
I viewed your photograph. It has no clinical importance. You can just ignore the same. It is just like a skin tag.If you want it to get removed you cal go for surgery, electric cauterization, Cry o surgery or laser. Even if you left untouched it will not become bigger or will not give any trouble. The occasional iching is not due to this lesion, it may be due to sweating or may be due miliaria rubra lesions. Nothing to worry.
Be cheerful.
Have a nice day.
