Hello There. I can understand your concern. You should stop scratching it first of all. only then it will heal. stop squeezing it also. apply a T-Bact ointment over the area daily and it will be fine within a few days. Do not worry. if still persists, consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hi, do not squeeze it. It takes time to heal. As you have taken the antibiotics it will heal. As the area is prone to get wet, suggest that it might take a little more time to heal

Hello there...I can understand your concern. From picture it looks liek it healing. You can continue the antibiotics for few more days. It's better to taken even anti inflammatory along with it. If there's discharge even after 3 to 4 days, then it's better to go for incision and drainage. Kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
