I have a small raised (3 mm or so) shiny rounded red bump that popped up on my neck about a month or so ago. Its not a pimple, and it doesn't hurt or itch and I can't pop it. (i hit it up with a needle and it just bled, no pus or anything inside.) i've been trying not to mess with it any further, just washing it with mild soap, and it hasn't changed. If anything I think it might have gotten a little larger.

Not sure what it could be since it hasn't gone away yet. I tried doing research on the internet, and I haven't been able to find anything. (no health insurance means I have to play doctor myself :p) any ideas?

Hmmm it could be a cyst. Most cysts hurt though which I find odd yours doesnt. You should go to the doctor and have them give you a shot. I forget what it is ( but its a steroid shot of some type) and it takes the bump or pimple down immediately and it leaves no scarring.
