Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

What you can try is to warm compresses to the area.

When doing this, squeeze gently.

The worm will often come to the surface where you can gently pluck it from the skin with your fingers or pair of tweezers.

You will then need to treat the infected site with antibacterial shampoor or cleaner and a triple antibiotic such as neosporin.

If you can not do this, I would see your veterinarian where they can quickly and safely extract the worm/bot from the skin and prescribe antibiotics as needed.

I hope this information helps!
