Generally speaking, a wound with any sort of complication (like formation of pus) should be seen by a doctor. If that is out of the question, just follow basic first-aid procedures - soak the wound in warm water (increasing blood flow to the area to reduce chances of infection) and/or ice the wound if there is any swelling. Keep the wound clean and apply antiobiotic cream and clean bandages 1-2 times a day. Good luck!
