Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your son. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time, so ill answer this question for you. Can you attach a picture of the pimple here?

Without a picture it would be difficult to determine the exact cause of the bleeding pimple, as there can be several possibilities here. So ill opt out and you can wait for another expert to respond here. Thanks.

This is Dr. David

it sounds like this is an skin AV malformation (arterial venous) which sometimes can look like cherry angiomas on the skin

has the area stopped bleeding

if it hasn't stopped bleeding, he should see a doctor right away for evaluation and treatment

he may need one stitch in the area to stop bleeding

or a small bit of pressure or cautery there to stop bleeding.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
