Accident bruise

I met with a bike accident on 1st Feb. Doctors advised me to keep my wound open. I had applied softinox cream on the wound only once. The wound didn't come in contact with water even once. Now the wound has hardened and looks like the below picture. Can I wash the wound with water and savlon soap to remove muck?

Hi donot attempt peeling or removing scab.... Worry if surrounding skin is red or inflammed or any pus collection... History of fever is significant and indicates infection...
