    The pus is impure and if it flows out, wudhu will be broken. If you are not a Shariah mazur person, i.e. pus does not come out in such a way that it covers the entire time of salah, then if pus gets on the clothes or body, then wash it and offer salah. And if the impurity on the clothes is less than one dirham then in this case, salah will be valid. But it is better to offer salah with complete purity by washing it.
