Hi and sorry your sister has this problem. It sounds like a bacterial (Staph) infection. It sounds like Impetigo at this stage. I would go to the doctor for it. They will give her antibiotics. She should be okay. Are there any red lines or streaks coming off of the wound or scab area?  Also, if she has a high fever. If so go to the ER. If not you can wait to get into the doctor. But make sure you get into the doctor right away (tomorrow). In the meantime Tell her not to scratch or touch the area.
