Another rough skin patch curiosity

Ok, so I have a rough patch of skin on the front of my torso between my chest and abdomen. There's really no discoloration unless you look [I]very[/I] closely and even then only slight discoloration. There's no itching, burning, or really any abnormal sensation whatsoever. Just at the lower edge of the patch is a reddish-pink bump the size of a normal pimple...however it is definitely not a pimple. This little "pimple" thing is actually what prompted the post as it started bleeding QUITE profusely when I scratched the surface of it off. I held tissue on it with pressure for a good 15-20 mins before it finally let up.

EDIT: OK, so pictures aren't allowed. I'm sure there's a good reason for this, but as this is a medical oriented site I don't know why...pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Pictures are worth a thousand words(right?), and that couldn't be anymore true than in long-distance medical diagnosis. So let me rephrase to follow the rules of the site: "I have a rough patch of skin. Please feel free to diagnose it and let me know which one it is from the many types of skin problems...without seeing it." (Or you can message me if you really want to help(PLEASE), and I will send you the links to the pictures...which I assure you are nothing inappropriate.)

TO MOD(Since I can't PM you):
Notice how there's not too many responses to your "Skin Problem" threads? There's TONS of skin problems that can all be described in very similar ways...especially by people that have no medical background and are using layman terms. How can you possibly give very good advice on a condition without being able to see the problem? Maybe you should consider revising your policy. If you're worried about minors seeing graphic images, require an age verification at registration for entry into adult forums. Otherwise, your forum is barely more useful than raft made of paper.
