Brief Answer:
Use a topical antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
I think it is due to dryness. I suggest you to apply a topical antibiotic e.g either Neosporin ointment or Mupirocin 2 % ointment, twice daily.

Topical antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Either Neosporin ointment Or Mupirocin 2 % ointment. 2% is the strength/concentration of Mupirocin in that ointment. Just apply a thin film.
