Hi dear,

The condition you are describing can be boil,tinea carporis, scabies, contact dermatitis etc.

Also I would like to know-

Since when you have this problem?

Is it painful?

Does it discharge pus?

Is it scaly?

Can you upload good quality photos of the affected skin.

Photos will help a lot in predicting the diagnosis and treatment.

You can upload them by using UPLOAD YOUR REPORTS section on right side of the box.

Till then you can take tab.zyrtec for the itching.

Apply antibiotic like soframycin over the bruised area.

Anticipating your reply.
