Raised tissue has emerged, if anyone can help I'd appreciate it

Recommended Posts

For the last 3 years I've been on antibiotics to help with moderate acne, that is usually characterised by whiteheads, but I do have occasional pustules/cyst breakouts, but nothing that bad in 3 years. I also use topicals that have essentially kept everything under control...

Around a week and a half ago this raised tissue has come about out of nowhere. I have kept to my normal routine and have compressed my face during washing and this isn't getting smaller. Nor does it contain pus, instead, it seems to bleed if I touch it. I haven't done anything like sticking needles in it or anything.

Can anyone help me identify it? 

I have no idea if it is a hypertrophic scar, or maybe a keloid scar, the only way I can think it could be one of those two things is because I've had acne in that area before many times and maybe this has occurred. I'd like to know what I can do to get rid of it.
