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?
