Red bump on back, itching occasionally, not a mosquito bite. Cure for bump?

I have a dime-size bump, red in color on my lower back (left side). I thought it was a mosquito bite at first because it occasionally itched and I always welp up when I get bit by mosquitos. However, this bump hasn t gone away in over a month. It isn t painful at all and hasn t changed. It doesn t constantly itch, just on occasion.

Thanks for your query.You have red bump on your back since one month.It itches occasionally.It is most likely a Sebaceous cyst which is very common to occur on back.Please consult your family Dr who will examine you and will treat with antibiotics or will guide to a surgeon if it needs to be excised.
