Does it hurt or cause any symptoms?
Do you have a picture that you can attach here for me to have a look at and then have a better opinion of what you are having?
Please let me know.
It is there. No picture.....
does it cause any symptoms?
like pain or itching?
No. just wondering what to do for it. No itching.....
It does not sound like anything serious
however if you really want to be sure you can have it examined by your doctor on your next visit
Is there an ointment I can apply?
You can try applying over the counter polymyxin
to see if that helps
this is an antibiotic
Is that available in CVS or Walgreens?
yes it should be and if its not you can ask for some other topical antibiotic which the pharmacist will suggest

Yes that can also be helpful
