Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You may apply triple antibiotic cream, available over the counter, to control bacterial infection of the raw area. If you get fever, enlarged lymph glands, or purulent discharge, it would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!
