Thank you for the information,

The red spot may initially simulate bruise.

But bruise is unlikely to last unchanged for 4-5 months.

It can be due to different cause.

The possibilities are allergy, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections etc.

I would advise to take a review by your doctor.

A dermatologist can be consulted too.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
