Brief Answer:
probably an infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

I have reviewed the image. It looks like an infection of the skin. Topical antiseptic creams can be applied. If not reducing, then oral antibiotics. You may need to consult your primary physician for a prescription.

Hope this helps.
