Resolved Question:

Can someone please advise what the attached are.First pic is a small lump on my arm. It's hard and doesn't have any heads. I've tried to squeeze it and it hurts. Certainly isn't a spot. I've had it for about 8 weeks. There's no other lumps/spots like it.The second image is if a bit of skin on my leg. I've had that for about three years. It was half the size about a year ago.Keen to know what they are and how to treat.
Thanks
