Hi,

Presence of a bulge with pus and blood oozing indicates secondary infection there. Keep the area clean and dry, and apply an antibiotic cream like Mupirocin for 5 days. If not getting better by then, kindly take him to doctor, as this will need oral antibiotics in addition.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
