  • mine keeps bleeding because i keep picking at it,, its about 3 mm in size, whatever it is.. It’s scabbed up and then I pick it off then it bleeds again..

  • Black people dont get skin cancer from the sun. They can get skin cancer from other means but not from the sun. You always say Bob Marley. I am african and have lived in different part of that continent and I can tell you I have not seen black people with skin cancer. If they were at risk then there would be an epidemic. Just own the curse the creator gave you for destroying his/her creation “The people of the SUN”. This is only the beginning as it will get worse as different forms of UV are penetrating the ozone layer. You think it will stay like this forever. You have been destined for EXTINCTION or Go Underground. The creator wants to get rid of you PERIOD. This was written in all of the ancient texts. Goodluck
