Cut in upper lips, pus oozing out after 2 days. Taking medication. Infection?

My wife had fallen from the house stairs and got a deep cut in her upper lips (under the nose) and many scratches near it . In the emergency room they sew the cut. She takes augmantin p.o and put bacitracin oint. Two days after (today) we a see pus that comes out of the injury. Is it a natural response of the body or infection? she has no fever and feels better

Pus always indicates some infection.
Clean it properly with antiseptic liquid like savlon.
Apply local antibiotic cream like fusidic acid.
Take oral nsaid to subside pain,swelling,inflammation.
Start proper antibiotic like amoxy/clav under guidance of your physician.
