See A Dermatologist: A few possibilities. One that comes to mind is a retained foreign body. You should have the area evaluated by a Dermatologist, as there is no way to assure you without an examination that the changes you have noted are not serious. I advise you to schedule an evaluation with a Dermatologist right away. I wish you well.
