Brief Answer:
Topical antibiotic and antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic,

I have reviewed the attached photographs and it seems to be an infected lesion.

I would recommend you to apply a topical antibiotic like Neosporin ointment on the affected area twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once daily if it is associated with itching.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards
Dr Asmeet
