Brief Answer:
Superficial bacterial infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It's looking like a superficial bacterial infection.
Try an over the counter available antibiotic cream twice daily for a week.
If there is no response a biopsy might be required to rule out other possibilities.
Try the cream and let me know the results.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
