Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
If there no signs of inflammation/infection ( redness, swelling, pain, itching ) then I would advice you at this stage don’t touch it ( don’t rub, scratch, cut, etc. ) Just observe evolution for next several days . If you will note any changes then better seek Dermatologist advice for clarification.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery,
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,
