Thanks for writing here.

It seems you are having bacterial infection.

It can occur anywhere on body.

Do not try to rupture or squeeze the lesion.

You need to take oral antibiotics like sporidex.

It will be better to consult your local doctor and get treatment accordingly.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
