Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear

Welcome to the platform of Health care magic.

For such a lesion in the exposed part of the body. to explain it better (history) duration of lesion is important to know.

If the history of such lesion is short, means two to three days along with headache and pain then there is possibility of infected small boil or insect bite is scratched unknowingly. This acute lesion should respond to proper cleaning, application of some antiseptic cream along with some anti inflammatory analgesic medicine.

But if this lesion is in you forehead for one or two months and is gradually increasing then one should contact dermatologist or ENT surgeon to rule out the beginning of rodent Ulcer.

Hope the query is answered.
