A few weeks ago I noticed this weird "mole" on the inside of my arm (in line with my breast). It looked as though my skin had raised in a perfect circle and there appeared to be a little dollop of blood in it. I left it for a couple weeks not thinking anything of it, but it just stayed and looked more and more bloody. Eventually I just ended up scratching it off (VERY bad I know). It bled alot. During that time I found 5 of these things on my breast (exactly in line with the one on arm). Two were biggish (the size of a small freckle), two were just like pencil dots and one was on the outside of my aerola. Once again I stupidly scratched them off... they all bled. I figured they would heal up real quickly. Well that was about 2 or 3 weeks ago. The small ones have sort of healed. The one on my arm is still red and healing. The two bigs ones, however, are not healing at all it seems (even though I was putting Bactroban on them). They look like little round cuts and the skin around them is very red and sort of chapping.
Any ideas on what these funny little bumps were? The best description I have is that they were like clear moles with a bit of blood. What can I try over the counter to heal them?
