A:   Thank you for writing to us.

It seems that you have some sort of allergic reaction or an infection. You need to see a Doctor to get it examined. The Doctor may scrape the lesion or do a biopsy to confirm the type of lesion.

Then, based on the diagnosis, he will give you the appropriate treatment. In most cases, this will be antibiotics or steroid or anti-inflammatory medication. I hope this helps you. All the best.
