I tried pinched the broken capillaries on my face and now it’s a bump

So I had this red mark on my cheek for two years, and last year I tried squeezing it and now it’s just a small raised bump. The red mark is broken capillaries, but I didn’t know that at the time so I tried to squeeze it. It’s been like this for a couple years now.  Does anyone have any idea of what I’ve done?

Ugh.  Ya, we have to be careful squeezing such things.  I had some of these on my face and went to a plastic surgeon that used a laser on them.  It wasn't very expensive and worked. but don't know if that is an option for you.  It was for me at that time when I worked full time and didn't have kids, ha.  Now, I probably would look for a plan B.  I found this:   It has some home remedies.  However, this IS your face you are talking about.  I would consider seeing a dermatologist or skin specialist for guidance.  good luck
