Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Though it is difficult to ma ke an exact diagnosis, without looking at the spot, it does sound like a bacterial infection.Kindly get it examined by your dermatologist who can prescribe Mupirocin ointment and cortisone ointment. These ointments need to be applied together, and the itchy spot will resolve.You need to apply the ointment for at least a week for a complete recovery.Hope this was helpful,Regards
