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.

    Good luck.
