Blood blister...or something...under my boob.

Hey again VP, it's me, the girl with the junk growing under her assorted skin folds.  Ugh.

So I've had a spot under my left breast, right where the wire of my bra rests, for a couple of years.  Initially, I would get a small blood blister there periodically that would clear up on its own.  Now, I have a permanent lump that varies in size from about half as big as a pencil eraser to up to twice the size of a pencil eraser.  Sometimes it just looks like a light-brown skin tag (in its small iteration) but in its bigger versions it looks like a blister very full of dark blood. When it gets this big, I slap a gauze pad between it and any bra I wear and it shrinks again.  I have accidentally drained it by scratching in my sleep (it kind of itches) and that's just a mess. It doesn't seem to be infected in that the surrounding skin looks fine, it's not hot to the touch, there's no pus. It's just like a blood blister that forms over and over again.

I - think - this is a skin tag that's just in a really unfortunate spot on my body and which I should probably get removed by a dermatologist. I have them on my neck, too, and those I just cut off with a scalpel before they get too big. But, i don't have insurance right now and if this is something I can solve without burdening our town's totally awesome free clinic? That would be great. If anybody has any ideas, I'm all ears.

My apologies for not posting a photo, but because of the location it's been tough to get a good one!!
