Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

To be of most help, I will need to obtain and review an image of this lesion. Please kindly upload one for us to review. You may as well email to customer service for upload if you have difficulties doing so on the portal. Only at that time would I be able to review and provide helpful guidance about the rash.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Brief Answer:
It is a papule, not suggestive of any disease condition at this time.

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for the image.

This is a papule. Very small and has same color as the surrounding skin. It doesn't suggest any specific disease condition at this time and requires no specific intervention.

My recommendation is to refrain from repetitive manipulation. Monitor the size, color and any onset of new symptoms such as pain or itch for prompt reporting which may require further review and evaluation.

I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me as you please.
