Hello and welcome to public forum
The pus in increasing and wound re-opens that means that your antibiotic is not effective on the bacteria that is causing infection of the wound. Consult you doctor and go for pus culture and accordingly more effective antibiotic can be started according to the report of pus culture.
In addition to this you need to do regular aseptic dressing of the wound with aseptic solution or cream. Keep the area sterile and in hygienic condition till the infection resolves.
