Perhaps : Perhaps this could be scabies? Scabies is the human itch mite that is passed from person to person. It is an extremely itchy infestation that can cause intense itching at night. Take a look at the picture in the link to see if this looks possible. Typically, there are red bumps and excoriations about the trunk and especially the extremities. Diagnosis is best made by a skin scraping by a dermatologist and then Permethrin cream is applied to the affected persons (and all clothing and linens are washed). I hope this helps! ...Read more

If small skin mole is accidentaly scraped/scratched off and does not regrow is this a concern ? Only scar remains with some redness

If small skin mole is accidentaly scraped/scratched off and does not regrow is this a concern ?   Only scar remains with some redness

Sounds normal to me: I'd be more concerned if the mole returned, especially if it became darker or larger. This sounds normal. The redness in the scar should gradually improve with time: avoid sun exposure until all the redness is gone from the scar. ...Read more

Very tiny, skin coloured bump where breast joins the shoulder, no itch, no pain, no redness, flattens when pressed. Anything to be worried?

Skin Tag: What you are likely describing appears to be a skin tag, without actually looking at it it's hard to say definitively however given the location and your description a skin tag is most likely.
