General & Family Physician 's  Response

Thanks for your query.

You need to take anti inflammatory medications and antibiotics.

It is wise to consult a general surgeon, since it needs good local examination of the lesion before being prescribed any medications.

Hope I have answered your query.

I will be available for your follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.
