This does look like an acute infection of the nose skin called Impetigo.

This can be treated with over the counter Neosporin ointment twice a day for 10 days .

It will heal the area.

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?

But it itches like hell??
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

It is associated with an eczema .Called bacterial eczema.

You can add Cortaid cream which is available over the counter to address the issue.

This is not an indication of MRSA
