Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

It looks like your wound in infected, that is why the nurse is giving you antibiotics. Although she is going about things the right way and has given you the right medication, you should still meet your doctor.
Also did the nurse clean your wound and remove all the pus? If not, ask her to do that the next time you see her.

I hope this answered your question.
