Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Topical antibiotics like mupirocin should also be advised to prevent any superimposed bacterial infection. Zinc and vitamin C supplementation can be advised to facilitate healing. You should also consult a dermatologist in this regard to look for a local cause such as lichen planus

Wishing you best of health
