Hi Tallie, thank you for the question.
Ideally one would like to examine the hard spot to determine exactly what it is before deciding on the best treatment approach. From your description it may be a keloid that is developing. Keloid is an overproduction of scar tissue and it is better treated earlier than later. My advice would be to see you family doctor or ask him/her to refer you to a dermatologist.
