Answer: Dear no need to put ointment. Same issue I had with my kids. Smelly pus will come. Don't worry. Do this as suggested by my doctor.
Boil half cup water. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Completely evaporate water. Then you get pure white white very fine Salt paste. Apply it on that pus area after bath.While bathing apply oil on that pus area so that water will not retain there. Within 3 days it will dry.Try and give feedback.

By dng this it ll get dry very fast may be within 2 to 3 days. Hope it's helpful.
