Could this mean anything?

Howdy, people. I fell off of my bycicle three days ago and hurt my knee. It's been a very long time since I last got any wounds and am wondering whether this white/greenish, discharge-like substance could be a sign of any infection or sickness. For the record, I've had a cold for 4 days, including today.

Thanks beforehand and I wish you a pleasant rest of the week!

You could also try applying neosporin.

Yes it is pus. Disinfect it and cover it up. Leaving a scrape like that exposed enables lots of things to get into the wound. If you have neosporin available, put that on. Also a gauze and bandage would be good to cover up the wound.

It does not have to be infected yet, but that is clearly pus which is a sign something that is there that you don't want to be there. Nothing to panic about, its rather normal for wounds like that just don't let it spread.

I took the picture right after I got out of the shower. It seems to already be gone today

Well after a shower it makes sense. Just make sure it has been cleaned properly and put a cover over it so it isn't fully exposed.

Got both a bandage and long jeans over it
