Pimple bursting while making wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have got a fat pimple or wound, which is still open. Its on my hand. It does not bleed when it is dry but when water passes on it, it gets wet, and water sits on it. When I put a tissue on it, the tissue gets stained with a dot of red or yellow colour, a little bigger than a dot. So my question is that since its on my hand, how do I do my wudhu? And the water that touches the wound is paak or napaak? 


A: If the blood or pus flows beyond the head of the pimple the wudhu will break. At the time of wudhu you may just pour water over that area.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
