Unable to visualise photograph .

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for uploading photograph However I could not visualize it as ot has been clicked from very close distance and includes entire area ,You need to shoot it from long distance and should focus only on affected and specific area involved .

Examination in person by a qualified general surgeon will be more appropriate to help in diagnosis.

Thanks and Regards.
