Hello and welcome
The symptoms gives clear indication of infection of the area. You needs to go to the doctor and get your pus culture done are proper effective selection of the antibiotic. This antibiotic will control the growth of the infection.
Along with this do proper aseptic dressing of the wound daily. Keep the area sterile and in hygienic condition. Do not touch dirty hands or instrument to the wound this may increase the infection.
Hope this will help you.
