Hi and thank you for your question. It may be ok to self treat but if the pain becomes severe or the skin begins to look infected, you will need to see your Doctor. The most effective over the counter treatment is cortisone cream. If your skin has broken, you will also need an antibiotic cream such as bacitracin,to prevent infection.
