Detailed Answer:

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Thanks for the photograph.

It is looking like a tiny spot of eczema, an allergic reaction.
Please apply a mild steroid cream like Cortisone twice daily for a week.

You should get relief with this.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
