Customer Question

Have a abrasion on my neck originally from razor burn or possibly an ingrown hair. Scratched it and opened it. The sore (maybe 1 inch * 0.5 inch) is not going away (2 weeks) and is red, with a lot of dead skin which flakes off. Maybe a little bit of puss, but trying not to mess with it other than washing with soap and used peroxide a couple of times. Let me know added info need and let me know how to treat or if I should go in. I could send a picture later if needed.
