Hi, i picked a spot on the outside of my nose about two weeks ago. it poured thin blood, dripping for a long time. it is difficult to stop it. it is very thin, almost like water. this has happened to me about 6 times since the initial. it is stopping quicker now, but still drips. should i be concerned? bump on nose won't stop bleeding

Eval: If this bump/ lesion won't stop bleeding, get it medically checked out. I am not sure what it is - Pyogenic granuloma?
