Road rash on knee, looks white, sticky and gooey, washed with antiseptic and dressed. Is this correct ?

Road rash on my knee looks white, sticky and gooey, I ve used antiseptic wash and had it covered in a dressing since last night, not long after it happened. I tried to clean it as good as I could before using the wash and dressing and have since washed again and covered with a new dressing. Is this the normal healing process

Welcome to HCM,
You have done your dressing perfect.
Continue daily.
If there is swelling or some infection, go for antibiotic medicine.
Go for Tetanus toxoid injection.
Ok and bye.
