A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that you had a regular abscess which got burst and then got filled with pus as it got infected again by a different bacteria or by the reaction of the body against the already present bacteria.

You need to see a Doctor to get the wound dressed and also start on antibiotics to help you kill the bacteria invading the wound. After this, you will be able to recover quickly.

See a Doctor as soon as possible. I hope this helps you. All the best.
