Same As Anywhere: Treatment would be the same as anywhere else on the body. Keep the area clean and watch for infection (increased redness, pain, swelling, drainage).

I advise you: to leave it alone and see a doctor for proper diagnosis. Meantime, just use a bland moisturizer like vaseline a few times a day.
