Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

The lesion appears to have acquired an secondary bacterial infection. The primary lesion as I suspect can be treated with steroid ointment like Betnovt C but since there is bacterial infection, I recommend you to apply an Antibacterial cream first.

Do apply Bactroban ointment twice daily over the lesion, once there is improvement then apply Bactroban in the morning and Betnovet C in the night to get rid of it.

Hope, I answered your query.
