Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I understand your concern. I have seen the attached photograph also. From the photograph, it looks like ulcer which may seems to be traumatic. Another differential for such ulcer is Pyoderma Gangrenosum. It is a condition of the skin characterised by an ulcer with undermined edges. In both cases, treatment is directed towards ulcer management. I prefer to advise oral antibiotics like cloxacillin and topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area. Get your blood sugar levels done. Visit your doctor so that he can do a physical examination and give you a prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy
