Welcome to healthcare magic,
Without an opportunity to see the lesion, I would not be able to accurately specify the condition. You can ask me a direct query by clicking on this link and then upload a photo so that I can diagnose the condition.
Take care.

You might have developed a molluscum infection.

It is a viral infection.

Treatment is removal with needle.
