Dear Bolenohana The history which you have given it sounds like cold sore
which is caused by herpes simplex. I think you should see the doctor who
may pescribe antiviral antibiotic medications. This is usually self imited.
One thing though it is very much contagious. Make sure you or your
children must not handle it with fingers i malead to painful witlow of the fingers
and also ca infect eyes.(Keratoconjunctivitis) Kndest regards Dr.S.K.Mukherjee
