Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
How large is the area?
Is it increasing in size?
Is there any discharge from it?
Can you describe the white area in detail?
Does it seem to be a scab forming on the area?
How is the pain?
Do you have fever or any other symptom?
It can be that the wound is healing with scab formation.
The red area can be due to inflammation.
Still I would suggest to get it checked by your regular doctor for confirmation.
It does not seem to be infected.
In case of infection there would be pus formation, increasing pain & spread of the sore area.
You are doing the right things.
Please continue it.
It is healing.
Please do not get nervous.
It can take 1 week to 10 days usually, sometimes more.
If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
It does not seem to be edema. In that case there would be increasing pain.
Yes, bacitracin is good.
It is likely to be forming scab.
Initially puffy, then it will be more firm.
If you feel that the pain is increasing, there is discharge of pus or smell, then you can need oral antibiotics. As it appears to be healing, antibiotic may not be needed at this point.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
Minor pain is not worrying.
It usually works. I am not sure why it is not working now.
You can attach to clip in tool bar.
I am changing to question & answer format if it is helpful for you.
