What is it when you have a Small dot hole like where a hair used to be there but now it s just a hole blood just comes out or even just a bit of liquid with a bit of blood? Just above it seems like its Bruce it looks darker like a hekey but it s not. Also it feels Bruce & it hurts. Sometimes the blood will just drip & it seems like non stop but it s a few blood coming out of the little hole.

Hi,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
The hole in the skin with bloody dicharge is looking like a sinus tract.
If it is a sinus, it has to be surgically excised completely along with the covering epithelium.
I suggest you to consult the general surgeon for examination and further intervention.
Hope I have answered your query.
Regards.
