Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic!
YOU DO NOT NEED MUCH WORRY IT WILL HEAL SOON.
JUST MAKE SURE IT IS DRY ALL THE TIME, AFTER YOU TAKE BATH IMMEDIATELY MOPE IT DRY.
TAKE TAB. LEVOCETIRIZINE5MG/FEXOFENADINE 180MG AT SLEEPING TIME ONCE A DAY FOR 7DAYS.
I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
