Itchy?: This sounds like it might be contact dermatitis.... your skin may be reacting to something it came in contact with, like poison ivy, metals, detergents, etc. If it is itchy, try hydrocortisone 1% cream. If that doesn't help, or it is very warm, painful, spreading, or draining pus, it may be infected and you should get it checked by a doctor. ...Read more

I have a small bump about the size of a pea on my salivary gland with what looks like a water blister. Gets big and busts sometimes with blood.

They often go away on their own, but can also re-occur. If too persistent, the minor gland can be removed in a minor procedure. If it is bloody, go see dds now. ...Read more

I have this red bump on my leg the size of a quarter and in the middle of it, is like a tiny bubble or blister in the form of a weird circle. Also, I was cleaning my closet and there was spiders that looked liked daddy long legs. So I don't know what?
