Just about a year ago and all was ok. Today it has a scab and there is no lump or bump. It seems to be some type of blood blister. No pus or anything. Just bright red blood.

OK
Staph infection is what it looks like to me.
Go in this week.
Exam and probably mupiricin [a prescription] is needed.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
