5 day old wound on knee
Do I need to get this wound checked as it is still not completely healed after 5 days. There is still redness around and it looks like some pus formation may also be there. I have been cleaning with Savlon and applying soframycin cream. I left it open without bandage thinking this will help heal faster. Please advise.

Hi Have you checked for blood sugar levels? Keep the wound clean. Try applying Calendula (Homoeo) ointment, twice a day. If the wound doesn't heal, consult me at my clinic
