You have an infected area on the skin. Please consult a doctor for an examination - you may need to get oral antibiotics.

Meanwhile, please take the following steps at home:

- Clean the area with clean cottonwool soaked in betadine solution, available OTC.

- Dry off and apply neosporin or betadine ointment thrice daily.

- Apply a vaseline surgical gauze , available OTC, over the wound. This will prevent the dressing from sticking to the wound.

- Apply a pad of sterile dry gauze and then sticking plaster.

But please get the infected area examined by a doctor.

I hope this helps.
