Hi dear thanks for your question. your right leg got injured 3 week back and now puss is coming out of wound and your taking antibiotic and local dressing ,you have not mention, whether the puss is coming from bone or from soft tissue.if the puss is coming from bone the condition is called as osteomylitis that is infection of bone,.It needs urgent treatment.your advised to consult some orthopedician, who will drill out the puss.If the puss is from soft tissue then it is less serious condition,get your puss drained by some surgeon and in both you continue with antibiotics .Hope you will be benefited from my answer.
