Hello, I went through your query, it could probably an infected wound, it is not possible to advice clearly without seeing the wound. Proper wound care, cleaning wound with saline water (tea spoon of salt in a jug of clean water) twice a day and applying betadine ointment is enough to get through minor infections and to heal wound with in weeks (duration depends on size and location of wound). Otherwise please talk to general surgeon.
