The fact that it is draining is good, and as others have mentioned cold water therapy is also great. Don't use peroxide to clean wounds as it will damage the healthy, regenerative tissue. You can use a dilute (weak coffee/tea color) solution of iodine if you want to scrub it out. Plain ol' soap actually works really well, scrub it up once a day. Also if your boy starts showing signs of illness (off feed, acting depressed) it is probably time for antibiotics. However because of the draining and location of the wound I suspect it won't come to this, especially with daily care. Best of luck!
