Thanks for the query.
It could be a folliculitis or a infected boil which has burst giving out pus.
There is nothing to worry.
Clean it with plain water or savlon.
Apply local antibiotic ointment like neosporin and wrap it up with some gauze and tape.
If the swelling is big and red having lot of inflammation,you may have to take some antibiotic course for which you would be requiring a prescription from a doctor.You can go to your local physician as it doesn't require any specialist attention.
For pain you may take some anti inflammatory like ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day for couple of days.
There is nothing to worry either for your wife or your child.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
