Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.This seems to be due to a ba cterial infection. Mostly it should resolve spontaneously. However, if it does not, you can get a prescription for Mupirocin ointment, and apply 2-3 times daily. Also keep the area clean.This will resolve the bump.Hope this was helpful,Regards
