Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It's important to clean any open wound before drying or bandaging.  Let the wound air-dry for a couple of hours after the bleeding or pus secretion stops.  Sometimes antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin can be applied.  If it does not heal after a week, you should see your doctor.
