Dermograghism: See a dermatologist. Meanwhile you can take a daily antihistamine. The best one for this is Zyrtec. The generic, cetirizine, is just the same only cheaper.

Thus you can write messages on your skin. ...Read more

Bump under skin: The causes of painful red bumps on fingers include infection, inflammation of the blood vessels, trauma, and irritation, and possibly emboli or blood clots which come from heart or other sources.

Not unusual: A persistent red bump could be associated with a mild reaction to the saliva of the tick or else there may be small fragments of the tick's mouth parts, causing a foreign body reaction. If this was a deer tick and the tick was latched more than 24 hours and you live in an area known to have lyme disease, you should check with your doctor to see if tests for lyme exposure are indicated. ...Read more

What is this red bump on the tip/middle of my nose? The bump is raised and has no pus in it. The bump has been on my face for about 2 weeks now.
Pimple.: Just because you did not get pus, does not mean this is not an inflamed papule or pimple. The body can produce intense inflammation in the skin, and that can be seen as a papule (red bump) or pustule (pus-filled bump). If there is no pustule, do not attempt to squeeze or manipulate it as this can create further increased inflammation. Try using an over-the-counter acne remedy. ...Read more
