Have purple bump on forehead, painless. Earlier had sunburn. Help

Hi, about two and a half weeks ago I found a non symmetrical purplish, bump on my forehead accompanied by a painless, colorless lump in my forehead right in the same area also. The bump is very small but slighty raised. They are painless but they havent gone away yet. I dont remember it i hit my head but I did have a sunburn prior to the appearance. I went to see my doctor about it and he said it could be solar ketotis by get examened by a dermatologous. I was wondering if you could help me with any further assisstance thank you.

welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
it look like keratosis lesion may be solar also
good thing is that it is painless
you should consult dermatologist .
excision or laser removal is the treatment of choice whatever the condition is .
do not pick the lesion or popped it
avoid sun exposure and apply good sun screen lotion over face before going out in sun
you can wear face mask also
i hope i answered your query
