The scratching has caused cellulitis of the skin. This is a bacterial infection and you will have to consult your doctor for a script for oral antibiotics. Keep the area clean by washing it with soap and water and dry the area well. You can apply Bactroban ointment, twice daily. Kepp the wound covered with a sterile dressing.
