Brief Answer:
Pyoderma most probably

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I read history and saw the photo. I feel that most probably you may be having pyoderma....caused by bacteria like staphylococcus. However you consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. After thorough examination and investigations,he might give proper treatment.

I would suggest....

- a short course of antibiotic
- antiinflammatory drugs
- antihistaminics
- apply antibiotic cream
- take bath with dettol liq containing water
- improve immunity
- take nutritious diet

I hope this would help you.

Thanks.

How about Granuloma. The symptoms are just the same. I'm against antibiotics. Please advise.

Granuloma is not a disease. It is a pathology...ok. And kindly consult the dermatologist personally and have thorough examination and investigations. Then the proper treatment may be given by him.
