Overweight, yellow fluid oozing from open sore on swollen leg post phlebitis attack, low circulation in legs, used hydra-cortisone ointment

I am overweight and my right leg is swollen (many years now) from an attack of phlebitis . Wounds do not heal quickly. I am dehydrated somewhat and have a circulation problem in my legs. My dog was licking the dry skin and pulled off a piece of dead skin causing an open sore. I have used triple antibiotic ointment and bacitracin zinc ointment and now using hydracortisone ointment. The sore is painful to direct contact with my finger or pants leg. I wear a bandaide to protect it. It leaks yellow fluid onto my socks after working 8 hours at a seated position. Suggestions?

My dear friend can u tell me your weight. I wounder how did u allow to lick your wound with dog. My first question is have you given injection to your pet. If not plz go and get anri rabic inj from your dr. As i found that yellow pus is coming from your wound so it requires a good antibiotic to get it healed. Get your blood test for diabitic done.
Bye and take care.
