If there is pus draining from the wound, it sounds like it is infected. You should go see a doctor. They will be able to prescribe antibiotics as needed.

Discontinue wearing the sandals, place a band aid on the wound and apply neosporen. Since there is drainage you may need peroxide as well.

Wash it with soap and water, let it air dry and apply antibiotic cream to it and bandage it for the first 2-3 days.
