Thanks for your query.

Is the lesion associated with pain of itching ?
Is there any kind of discharge from the lesion if it is open ?
What was its initial size ?
Have you tried any medication for the same ?

I would like to have a look at the spot/lesion you mentioning about.

This makes me understand the condition better and advice you specifically.

Do attach an image of the lesion here on the query page or send to email Id

To my attention , I am Dr Raju.

Waiting for the information.
