Brief Answer:
Looks like bacterial infection, oral & topical antibiotics

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic,

I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be Impetigo contagiosa which is a bacterial infection of the skin.

It doesn't look like a fungal infection.

If I were your treating doctor I would recommend you to give your child oral and topical antibiotics.

You haven't mentioned the age and body-weight, What is the age and present body-weight of your child?
Is your child having itching, pain or any other complaints on the lesion?

Kindly revert back with the answers.

Regards
Dr Asmeet
