Red spot on my face that won't heal

I have had a small red spot on my face for about four months now. I am white, freckly, and 25 years old. Every few days the spot goes through a cycle - it looks like it is almost healed, then I wake up one morning and it is very dry and looks inflamed. Sometimes it even bleeds a tiny bit. Then it looks like it's getting better again.

Is this sun damage or something else? Is there a skin care cream that can cure it? I have tried both an antibiotic cream and a deep moisturizing lotion, and neither one seems to help.
