This is Dr. David

this could be early cellulitis or an early infection

you should see a doctor right away or go to the local hospital to see a doctor at the A&E department

you might need a course of antibiotic therapy to help the area heal up.

you can also use over the counter antibiotic ointment like Neosporin on the area to help prevent infection.

do you have a hospital close to you where you can see a doctor?
