Usually this is the case and whats happening is your flexing the outer skin over that spot temporarily making it high and sanding the surronding area exageates it by making everything around it low....
Sometimes just the slightest touch is all thats needed for them to raise their ugly heads....
I've been out gently tapping these high spots, but I think you are on to something here. Underneath the high spot in the back if you're looking at the picture, there is a glob right underneath it that may be causing the high spot. What does this Old Gunslinger do when this is encountered? Should I try to cut that glob out with a knife and if so, what should I do in its place?
