I would be pleased to answer your question .

From your history and description of the lesion the possibilities include:
Erythema multiforme
Perforating dermatoses
Fixed Drug Eruption
Calcinosis Cutis
Granuloma pyogenicum

There could be many other possibilities . It would be difficult to tell the exact management unless the diagnosis is made. Could you upload the photo on and send us the link so we can help you better .

Thanks and Take care
