I have had a small very cyst type bump on my chest 9 months

Customer Question

I have had a small very cyst type bump on my chest for a 9 months to a year. 5 days ago I kind of squeezed it and blood came out. Now it looks sore and red whereas before it was flesh coloured. What could it be?

Also, I forgot to add recently I have been getting small fleshy coloured little bumps on my right hand and now on my left too. They itch and become red and raised but return to flesh coloured again within a couple of hours.

The picture looks like a fist, not a chest.

These small bumps are milia.

Not harmful, and usually clear up on their own.

Your doctor can confirm this.

The rash is red in this photo as I have been itching it.When it's itchy it goes red, then subsides into small little bumps that become flesh coloured.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

Looks like an area that was scratched.

Completely benign looking.

Unless is has persisted.

if it has been there a long time, it needs magnified exam, to rule out squamous cell cancer.

It has been there for about 3 weeks and is now spreading to other hand.

The scratch on the chest; it was a little spot/cyst type thing. Skin coloured. Then it popped and blood came out. And this is what it looks like now. Should I see a dermatologist and ask for more examination?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.


Magnified exam.

Regarding the rash on my hands, it is itchy and flares up sometimes. I thought milia doesn't itch? What else could it be?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tiny spots can be seen here
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

No rash is visible in these pictures.

I see dry skin.

You might have a very mild case of dishydrotic eczema.

Moisturizing alone might help.
