Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Friction with hard and dirty asphalt can indeed make the wound vulnerable to infection. Signs of an infected wound can be observed from wounds that do not dry out, redden, swell, and discharge yellowish discharge resembling pus, as you experience it. This condition, if not handled properly and quickly, can increasingly spread to other areas. It is not impossible, the infection of the wound in the leg can also spread into the blood to reach other distant organs.
You should not delay checking your complaint to a doctor or surgeon. With early treatment, of course the potential for dangerous complications can be prevented. Usually, doctors simply treat normal injuries, while supported by administering several types of drugs to speed healing.
The following steps you can take to treat your wounds at home:
Clean the wound regularly, morning and evening using a solution of NaCl (sodium chloride) and clean gauze, tapping the wound so that the pus comes out clean
Do not carelessly give medicine on wounds that appear
Take care of your personal hygiene, including by diligently washing your feet and using clean footwear every time you indulge
If you feel pain in the wound, you can take the drug paracetamol to relieve the pain
Hope this helps ...
