Dear sir/madam

Usually green discharge from the wound site is caused by anerobe bacteria such as pseudomonos.
It should be taken seriously always. You cannot always use conventional antibiotics, you need to proceed with pus culture and sensitivity for the same.

You need to consult your doctor immediately.
