After reading your history there can be mutiple of possibilities of the same which can be due to trauma to local area which is causing damage to the skin day by day. It would be better if you can give us a detailed history along with a good picture of the affected area or can consult a dermatologist for checking the aggravating factors. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area. You can apply a calamine lotion over the same. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. For the pain part you can take paracetamol (Crocin) or diclofenac or Ibuprofen.
