Scabs: Please start with a clinic visit to your primary doctor. Your issue might be easy to control or your doctor will refer you a specialist. Please let me know what develops.

See Specialist!: It could be a general contact dermatitis. If after 3 days of using an anti-inflammatory cream with no relief, I recommend getting it looked at in person. If you have any symptoms such as increased redness, swelling, fever or nausea, make sure you seek medical treatment immediately! Get better soon!
