It does look like an insect bite. Apply some coconut oil. Also does it has pus?

Then just apply coconut oil and wait for sometime. Itching will go. Clean it also with a medicated soap

Thankyou Neha Mani Mishra

It could be a infection also of nail bed paronychia... Better to show to a surgeon

You must meet ur doctor, it needs some treatment, don't self medicate

Hi parul!!!
It looks like infection.. meet a surgeon asap to treat with medicines.. delaying treatment may worsen this..
