Our expert says:
I think you should just let your GP have a look - it sounds to me as if it quite deep and big - I am just worried that it won't be able to grow closed from the sides and may need a skin transplant. If you put gauze and Bactroban on, let your hand lie in lukewarm water for a while before trying to remove the gauze, so that it softens first.
