Hi,

Keep the area clean and dry as far as possible. Apply Fusidic acid ointment twice daily for 5 days. Give Paracetamol for pain. If no relief in 3-5 days, kindly consult your pediatrician for further management.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
