Looks like the area where ur wife had developed anaphylactic reaction or redness turned in to a secondary bacterial infection with application of home products.
If there is a formation of an abscess then it requires an incision and drainage.
Otherwise u have to start on antibiotic therapy and get a regular dressing.
Please consult.
