Hi,

Can you send me a picture? What is the size, colour and shape of the lesion? Is it protruding out? Without seeing or getting above details, it is difficult to comment on the diagnosis. Biopsy report can also help. Whatever be the diagnosis, presence of blood / pus discharge indicates secondary infection, which needs antibiotic treatment. Your doctor will guide in this. Meanwhile, keep the area clean and dry; apply topical antibiotics like Mupirocin.

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

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