Hi, I was hoping someone might know what's wrong & help me out here.
For the record, I dont have any bad health problem in the past.
Anyways, to the point, I have this small bump on my antebrachial (forearm). The only spot there, no where else. I dont really know how it got there but when I finally realized 'bout it, I didnt really think much of it. I thought it be some sort insect's bite (even though it wasn't itchy) but it somewhat been a week or two (don't remember exactly but I'm guessing it's 'bout a week) & it hasn't gone away. It's a small sized little puffy spot. About the size of a dime, perhaps a lil' smaller. It doesn't itch & somewhat dry. Kind of light redish color.
Oh, when I take a bath/shower, I'd made sure to wash the spot with soap and water but the outcome is the same. Didn't make any difference.
I hope its not contagious or anything serious. o_o;
