You really need to see a doctor for this problem. It is very contagious especially in small children who aren't really good at washing their hands yet. You could try Bacitracin or triple antibiotic ointment but remember good handwashing is very important!

A doctor will sometimes recommend a prescription antibiotic. Washing the area with warm soap and water before applying the antibiotic will help.
