I have a small wound on my neck/chest area that came up about

Customer Question

I have a small wound on my neck/chest area that came up about 2 weeks ago. I initially thought it was an insect bite as it has a raised blistery looking circular edge with an open wound in the middle. It scabs over but doesn't seem to heal and seems to flare up regularly. I've tried putting bactroban on it but this doesn't seem to help. It itches sometimes. I'm worried as it's not healing that it's not an insect bite but a squamous cell carcinoma?
