* One type of Lesion is a surface one, like a Paper Cut Line or Scratch
  leaving a shallow scar that fades in time. (Photo 1-2)

* Another type of lesion is also surface - but may depend on skin depth of area -
  starting with a burning sensation like acid or cigarette burn,
  usually located near the genital or other soft skin areas and lasts for 3-4 weeks

Depending on the area some scars fade away slowly and some leave white patches.

(1) Shallow surface Lesion under Ear - (2) White Patches on Back (3) and on back of Leg

* A  Variation of the above lesion starts with a burning sensation on the skin much like most
followed by the formation of a Deeper, Bumpy, itchy lesion that develops for days.
It creates an open caving with some painful thick plankton like substance in the center
impossible to be squeezed. It is, or becomes part of the skin and there is frequent
pin like (digging) activity inside it, lasting for three to four weeks as usual. (Photo 1)

visible inside left upper part, as well as a small maroon blood spot

The initial pus/plankton in the center, turns into a yellowish cheese like substance
or more specifically into a wet chock granuloma, impossible to dig out other than surgically.
I suspect it is the same type as above but either attacked by more Malassezia ‘units’
or the depth of the skin area is more favourable. . (Photo 1-2 below )

Maroon Blood Spots are often visible, possibly entry / dig points. . (Photo 1)
