Hey guys, I had an accident in Thailand about 10 days ago. I ended up with deep wound in my knee. I started of putting alcohol solution on it to clean it and then wrapping it with a fresh bandage. I have now been putting some iodine solution on it to prevent bacteria, viruses and fungus to the open wound.
The wound has like a white (slightly yellow but that might be from the iodine) puse in the deepest part, it does not smell bad or anything, does this mean it is infected?
Should it not have healed up yet?

When you say deep should it not have been sutured. If it's that deep you may be looking at tendon ( usually white, shiny and slightly yellow. Could this be tendon? 10'days is not long if the wound was deep but you should be seeing signs of improvement. Wound bed looking pink and edges smoothing out, possible scan formation. Inodine is a good antibacterial so continue with that. Hope it heals soon
Maybe it should have been sutures but I do not know. I have seen some improvements in the 10 days and it has pumped back up but not fully yet. I wish I could upload a picture so you could see what I mean. I just wanted to check if anyone thought it might be infected really. Thanks for the reply and hopefully it starts scabbing soon 👍
