Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Keloids will generally be injured if rubbed or scratched accidentally. If your wound looks festering, it means the wound is infected. Infected wounds must be treated with antibiotics (can be topical antibiotics or drink antibiotics depending on the size of the wound and the severity of infection) and antibiotics can only be obtained by prescription. Therefore, if it does appear pus in your wound, your wound looks bigger, more painful, or looks swollen in the tissue around the wound, the wound gives off a bad odor, you should consult your doctor for further evaluation and treatment.
The following are some of the things you can do at this time:
Clean the pus or dirt that sticks to the wound, clean it using clean water that runs once a day or more often if there is enough pus production, rub gently when the dirt or pus sticks.
Dry the wound with just aerated
Cover the wound using wound tape, replace it at least once a day or more often if it is wet or dirty
Make sure you wash your hands with soap before and after treating your wound
Don't scratch the wound and avoid excessive friction on the wound
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
