Lump size of your small finger nail. After 3 days now half the size of mu small finger nail. No bleeding.Feels like a pimple. I have provided stool samples the last 10 years religiously in medical check ups and always tests negative for blood in stool. Your thoughts...Thanks Marty

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The lump can be related to a foruncle which is an inflammation of the hair follicle.
I recommend to use an antibiotic.cream such as Neosporin cream.
I also suggest using warm compresses or soak in warm water several times a day for relieve.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
