Swollen wound with pus

I have a swelling on my hip which was dry, small and painless couple of weeks ago. But last week it started paining yet no pus was there. But today it has begun bleeding slightly( only when i sit or move as pressure is applued to it probably) and some white liquid comes out of it. Currently im on an internship so cant miss any days of work. Any solutions considering the situation?

You need to consult any consultant orthopaedician or consultant physician immediately. You need to collect that white fluid in sterile container and check for culture sensitivity test, AFB stain, ZN stain. It might be a cold abscess due to TB Infection. It may also be any bacterial infection. This kind of wound need to be physically examined instead of online consultation.
