A few options - a leave it alone. Soak 3-4 times a day for 10-15
minutes in water as hot as can be stood - no point in burning him -
that won't help <seriously, I have seen people who thought they were
being brave by hurting themselves>!
Another option. Wash with soap and warm water first. Freeze the area
with an ice cube to give you several seconds of painless working
time. This is usually more effective than trying to get a child to
hold still while Mommy pokes him with a needle - kinda hard to
convince him it won't hurt. He'll want to know how the heck YOU can
tell! Use antibiotic ointment and band-aid after.
