that looks like a skin infection like a staph or strep skin infection

it could be an area of skin MRSA infection

or bacterial skin infection

you should see a doctor and get a skin culture there and biopsy

you should see a dermatologist or infectious disease doctor about the spot

you might need a course of antibiotics to help clear up the infection

do you have a doctor you can see?

do you have health insurance to see a doctor?
