Default A scab, not sure what to do?

Recently I got treated to get rid of a PWS on my neck and chin. I've notice that there's one spot thats not healing. It seems to be forming a scab. I'm not sure but should I be worried? It's been 1 week, but the other areas have healed almost. This is my second treatment and nothing went wrong on the first treatment.

I would encourage you to contact your doctor and he/she may prescribe an antibiotic ointment to cover the area. Aquapher might also be an option if the area isn't infected.
