Infection on the ankle, releasing pus. Advice?

I don t know if this is something you know of, but I have this infected area on my lower leg, above my ankle that is red, pussing, and seeping clear liquid. I ve only had it a couple of days now, but it s gotten worse. Before I had it, I had a very itchy bump there that I thought was a flea bite. It is now replaced by this area. It s just a small wound on the skin.
