Hi. Greetings. This seems to be an acute inflammation and would advise you to take immediate medical help in the form of visiting a dermatologist personally. You may need a course of anti biotics - topical and oral. You could contact me on follow up chat or at least send pics on hope this helps. Warm regards, Dr Govind S Mittal, Excel Care hospital, Bangalore.
