Interesting : I could only guess: a wart that has not come up yet: a cutaneous larva from walking through water...a callus that is loosening up. A tiny sliver in your skin. Try soaking in Burrows Solution ( sodium triacetate) 10 minutes: 3 times a day: for 7 days. If not better by then, see a skin doctor, (not skin walker.....skin doctor)
