Thank you so much for the photo sent. It looks very much irritated and inflammed. You should treat the inflammation with over the counter cortaid and Neosporin ointment.Cleanse the area with over the counter Cetaphil cleansing lotion and Use Cetaphil moisturizer on the area to heal the area.Please stop exfoliating the area for now as the condition will worsen. Please follow the above treatment. If it is possible to get a prescription antibiotic , a short course of antibiotic will be the best addition to the above treatment. Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.

Will it ever heal and how long will it take?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 11 months ago.
Yes , it will definitely heal. It will take 3 weeks to heal and form a good layer of skin . To get a completely non brown skin mark in the area , it will take 3 months. Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Thank you very much. And what do you mean by brown mark, will it be darker or lighter than my skin tone? I an bald black half white so I'm a light brown colour
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 11 months ago.
It may be darker than the normal skin color you have for around 3 weeks. and then it will go away totally and become normal skin color. I would recommend you to take Vitamin C orally for 3 months to prevent the intensity of dark skin color on the area affected. Do you want me to release the rating service application your page so you can give me a feedback ?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes but I have I have one more question, what do I do about the drainage?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 11 months ago.
The Antibiotic will help in the drainage . So if in case you can get the antibiotic that would be the best bet. I would recommend you the above treatment. RegardsDr PravinDo not squeeze the area .
