I had this benign smooth small-ish bump on my nose for around two years, then around october time last year my nose got very dry and it kind of scraped/came off. It bled a little but it didnt seem to be full of blood, maybe just a clear fluid. It never bothered me up until it came off. I was really happy because i thought it had gone. But then it started to come back. it came back even WORSE! it got very red, formed an uneven texture and still hasnt dissapeared and we are in March. I have been to a doctor, who presciped me acne medication, which just irritated it. Then i visited a dermatologist who told me i could have a shave biopsy. Its not cancerous which is good. But i am very very self concious about it. It is not a raised red , uneven bump on my nose. If you apply pressure it will stay down for 5 seconds until it comes back again.
I have been weighing up whether i want to go ahead and have a shave biopsy, i am worried about it scarring badly. It isnt very big, it is about 4mm/5mm, but it still is very obvious ( especially to me ). How long do shave biopsys take to heal? could it come back after the biopsy? and how long after the shave biopsy would i have to wait before wearing makeup??
