SeepingBloodFilter: like this shaving nick, I'll cut to the point inside...

I've a little bump near my nose and upper lip. Harmless little thing, not a mole or skin tag, just a raised bump that's been sitting happily there for as long as I can remember.
Said bump has been nicked whilst shaving these past couple of times and slowly oozes blood for endless hours. For no particularly good reason I can imagine, the blood simply doesn't coagulate. I can (and have) nick myself most anywhere else and quit bleeding within minutes, so it's not like I'm a hemophiliac.
I really don't think this is a Big Medical Concern. It shows no signs of being anything but a bump.
Any ideas on why it bleeds so, and what household items may be used to force coagulation? Lemon juice didn't do the trick...
