Dr. David :

this sounds like a blister

Dr. David :

or it could be due to a sebaceous cyst.

Dr. David :

would you like to upload a photo of the spot?

Dr. David :

do you have a doctor you can see who can look at it as well?

Dr. David :

I have a different opinion for you.
What you describe certainly does not fit with sebaceous cyst or a blister.

Ringworm fits the description.
So does the rash that goes along with lyme disease.

I would not wait on this but go have your GP take a look at it.

There are other possibilities but these stand out.
