What is on my leg?
I'm 18 years old and I've had this little red bump on my leg for as long as I can remember. It gives me the urge to pick at it and it doesnt hurt. There have been long periods of time where I dont touch it and it just doesnt go away. There isnt any kind of liquid in it and it cant be popped. I'm just at a loss of what it could be

Looks like a nodule.
Nodules are not infectious.
It is either that or it is a skin condition called 'Molluscum Contagiosum,' which is contagious.
I had Molluscum Contagiosum before and was living with family. Luckily, no one else contracted it.
At the time, I was unable to go to see a dermatologist – for complicated reasons I will not share here.
Anyhow, I would advise you schedule an appointment to go see a dermatologist just to be sure.
