Our Barney had a lump that looked kind of like a bug bite and then he started messing with it. We took him to the vet and they wanted to remove it. It could be totally innocent or it could be something not so good.

I would suggest getting it looked at. We did for Barney and are now facing chemo. frown

I don't mean to scare you. Barney's lump was there for a little while, a couple months. But it didn't go away and then got worse. His ended up being a mast cell tumor. Good luck and I hope your baby just has a callous.
