Should I see a dermatologist for an itchy spot on my forehead?

Hi, I have a spot on my forehead that at first just looked like a small burst spider vein, but then it itched so everytime I scratch it, it would bleed. Now it has formed a small lump under the skin and continues to bleed whenever touched or scratched. Should I see a dermatologist?

Hi,

You must consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. It may be blood capillaries containing bump called pyogenic granuloma as you described the lesion. So, it is urgent to consult the dermatologist. After thorough examination and investigations,he may decide the mode of treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
