Dear Madida
You may have a bacterial infection. Try using antiseptic soap like Hibiscrub to wash with, and use a topical antibiotic like Eryderm lotion on the area for 2 weeks. If this does not help ask your doctor to take a swab of the area and to send it to the lab for microscopy and culture to see what kind of bacteria this is?
