Attached is the photo. It is on his stomach. Just some concerns. We will not be able to see a dermatologist for some time. Was not there 2 - 3 months ago. Noticed it today when shaving.

Hello

Infected hair follicle most likely.

You don't need a dermatologist.

Any doctor can take care of it.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Hi, I should have mentioned that in the photo it appears a bit more red. It is raised and part is higher than the other. The edges are not solid and it is discoloured. Raided part seems darker than the other. Uneven edges. Thanks again. I am attaching a photo that may show you a bit clearer a photo.

This is a benign lesion.

I don't see any urgency here.
