Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We apologize in advance because we couldn't see the photo you sent. However, if you judge from your description that the wound is festering and hollow, it is possible that an infection has occurred. Exactly why this infection can occur, it could be related to animals that bite or sting you, it could also be due to poor hygiene, allergies, or irritation for example due to scratching or friction.
Regarding this condition, we recommend that you immediately return to your doctor beforehand, or directly to the dermatologist as a doctor who is more competent in this field. By looking directly, you can know the trends and determine the best treatment for you. Your doctor may sew the wound if it is large, or cover it with gauze to control every few days. What is clear to be handled better, you need to be examined directly by an expert, namely a dermatologist.
In the meantime, you can just keep the wound clean and dry, take medication regularly, do not touch or peel the wound, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
