Question Abscess?

So I have this picture of a horse, i'm thinking it's an abscess or is it a cut? I'm leaning toward abscess...

It's not infected i'm taking very good care of it, there is not green/white/yellow puss, there is only clear liquid...

I've been cleaning it Everyday with a bacteria killer...
and warm water.

Then i've apply a triple antiboitic to it which has a cooling effect in it!
then rub fly spray around it just in case the bugs come out early...

I'm putting a proud flesh killer on it too! :]

There is also a little halter rub on his cheek bones, and there bateria killer is /reddish(so his skin is orange/redish) and i'm leaving the halter off

[i think I looks worst than it is]
P.s- He's eating his hay, and his grain just fine, and drinking as well, and pink gums!

The first picture is from today and the second on is from yesterday..I think it look better..

That looks like strangles busts to me.. but the no pus is throwing me.. Keep them scrubbed very well, and IF it should be strangles, whatever comes out of it is highly contagious to other horses

okay! Yes that's why I don't think it's strangles, no puss, no snoty nose, and no cough...and he's a stallion, he's pastured by himself. Can't touch noses with other horses, and none of the other horses show signs...what else should I use to clean it? Any suggestions?
