Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.

The small wound may be a patch of dermatitis.
Does it itch or hurt?

I shall be more sure about the diagnosis if you may attach a picture of the wound using the upload your reports feature on the query page.

Awaiting your response
Thanks

Thanks for your reply

This sounds like furuncle.

Use tab cefadroxil 500mg twice daily after meals for 7 days.

You will get this medicine only on prescription of a doctor.

Thanks
