Hi there Laura.
The ooze constantly suggests an eczema
Is there any crusting/yellow discharge...it may indicate a secondary infection.
Use a topical corticosteroid-antibiotic cream combination twice/daily .
add an antihistamine like fexofenadine180mg once/day that is nonsedative.
Your lesion should subside or at least stop oozing in 12 hrs.
If not, time to visit your nearest dermatologist
Cheers & Good Luck! & here's to a clear skin soon!
