Brief Answer:
May be a small skin infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

This may be a small area of skin infection. You can continue the ice pack application. This may not be serious, but some topical antibiotics may be required. Better to visit your doctor for this reason.

There is nothing to at this point.

Hope this helps.
