Extrusion issues around holes

Hello All, I am trying to print something with PLA at 15% infill with pretty much default settings.

However, I am having some pretty bad issues. For some reason, I am getting "bleeding"(what I believe to be over extrusion) into the edges around the holes, causing them to raise up and hit the extruder. It's quite nasty, but every other part of the print is generally fine. I did trying clearing the nozzle to see if there was a clog, but the result was the same. I've only had this printer for about 2 weeks now as well.

How can this be remedied?

Solution: As it turns out, there was a veeeerrryyy small countersink under the holes that I did not see and that support was not generated for, so the extruder was just printing in midair and causing raise bumps.

Guess I have to really double check stls from friends in the future
