Now what is this?!

I have a big red spot on my thingy which has been there for nearly a month now. It's getting smaller but is sore when I touch it (I inspect it daily . . . I'm the curios type), and when I drag my finger over it, it turns blue, then red again. I know this is not really a problem, whatever, but I'm just curios. I get these 'things' regularly but they go away within a week of first apearing. I also know what causes it so don't bother. Just the colour, I've never seen this before.

Happy day!

Dear Fanny
There is possibly some bleeding inside that is causing the tenderness and colour - maybe this needs draining with a sterile needle?

Nee man, die velletjie bo-oor is in elk geval teen hierdie tyd gevoelloos - jy moet dit net kan bykom! As jy dit los sal dit in elk geval opklaar so dis nie 'n moet nie! Ons dokters is mos nie kleinserig nie - ons voel nooit iets as ons goeters dreineer nie.....
(Maar moenie so lelik voor allie mense praat nie ore tuit nou nog :-)

Female. It's bacteria forming a huge pimple-like growth like a ingrown hair I guess. It usually pops after a few days and then heals quickly. Whyyyyyyyyyy?

Are you male or female? What causes it?
