How to get rid of pus on a small incision? My daughter had back surgery and has two small incisions on her back. One has dried and looks good while the other one has a little pus on it. How do we clean it?

In brief: Ask

Ask your spine surgeon, if very superficial, open it and use pack and or dressing changes and it will heal, but the scars won't match.
