Hi!! According to your history it seems to be a case of infected eczema.You will have to take course of antibiotic like amoxycillin clavulanic acid and apply antibiotic steroid combination like momatasone fusidic acid on the affected area for 7- 10 days.. Also take antihistaminic like tablet levocetrizine.Besides this avoid wearing tight bra and remove the piercings if possible.
