I am attempting to make a cloud and I did so with the path tool. However, I went out of the path in a couple of areas, so I am trying to erase the small parts that are not in line:



Whenever I try to erase them (with a 1px eraser) the eraser goes crazy and looks like I tried erasing everything, even though I am attempting to erase such a small area. What is going on? How would you recommend I fix the two areas next to the arrows?

I tried erasing the tiny area by the blue arrow:

Which product are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?

It looks like you used a 1 pixel eraser but moved the cursor all over (as if you couldn't find it).
Are you using a tablet or touch device?

I'm using the newest version of photoshop. I have the creative cloud.

Adobe Photoshop Version: 2015.1.2 20160113.r.355 2016/01/13:23:59:59 CL 1059143  x64Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit
Version: 8.1

Right, that is what it looks like. But it isn't the case. Whenever I click down with the eraser that happens automatically.

Since Photoshop only paints where you (or the OS) have moved the cursor, that means that something on your system is moving the cursor around in ways you aren't expecting.

Is there a second pointing device connected to your system, by chance?  Or a malfunctioning USB device that acts like a mouse?
