Thank you for the information,

Yellowish whitish material inside the injury can be from inflammation only or it can be the beginning of infection.

You need to get it examined by doctor to get exact diagnosis.

Till you see doctor neosporin cream can help.

You should also contact your doctor regarding the vaccination status against tetanus.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
