Clear fluid or pus?
You can use silver sulfadiazine cream on the site and keep the it covered under vaseline gauze for atleast 2-3 days.Once scab is formed you can keep it open.Take some painkillers like tylenol or motrin and keep the hand elevated to decrease the swelling.
If the discharge becomes yellow/green and fever develops , see your doctor who can start you on antibiotics .
