Hello,

I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image.
I can see an eroded nodule in this image. Seems like a Boil or Nodular acne. Is it painful? How long since you have it?

Brief Answer:
Oral and topical anti-acne medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I suggest you to take an oral antibiotic e.g Azithromycin daily for 5 days. In addition to this you may apply a topical Clindamycin and Benzoyl Peroxide combination gel (Clindoxyl gel), twice daily for a week.These are prescription medications and I advice you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.

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

Regards,
Dr. Kakkar S., Dermatologist
