Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It has been infected. Use topical mupirocin or fusidic acid and oral amoxicillin to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
