Cut on the toe. Wound still open and oozing despite using polysporin ointment

I have a cut on the inside of my second toe (between my middle toe and the one beside the baby toe) that just doesn t seem to want to heel. because of where it is, band aids don t stick for any length of time before falling off. I am cleaning it regularly and putting on polysporin ointment, but 10 days later it is still open and slightly oozing.
