This doesn't happen often - actually, it's only happened to me twice - but what happens is I pick at my skin (awful I know) and particularly if I pick at a small, non-inflamed white bump, it will turn in to a large red bump and then fade to a large, nearly flat, purple mark that sticks around for a long time and is ITCHY. Does this mean what I think it does (bruising)? If so, what are the long-term implications of this? Have I permanently damaged my skin? Or is it something else entirely?

When you say they stick around for a long time, how long? They could just be the mark left from the spot, they tend to stay longer if they've been picked at previously. I'm not sure why they're itchy though? :confused: Well they can fade in a few months If you have a product that works well with them, but some can stay for over a year. Maybe adding a picture might give you a few more responses.
