In brief: Depends

If it is a surgical wound, go back to the surgeon.
If it is from some sort of trauma an emergency medicine doctor, internist or any type of surgeon should be able to treat a noncomplicated wound infection.

Your primary care doc can look at it for you to see if it is serious and refer you to a specialist if needed.
