Hi, if wound is healed there will be dry scab. If any pus is coming out it indicates infection. Go for pus culture and sensitivity. Continue taking oral antibiotics, alternate day dressing. Keep the wound clean and dry. Don't put water on it, if it occurs wipe it with clean cloth. Consult general surgeon for furthur care.
