Your dog has a serious infection that can lead to many more problems if he doesn't get medical treatment immediately! As an owner your responsibility is to care for him &meet any needs he might have. It's like having children,he can only rely on you. He needs to be treated by your vet with antibiotics & topical treatments. Also wearing his collar even occasionally when going out will only make the wound worse! It is being constantly irritated with an unsterile collar! I'm sure you love him so don't let him suffer. If you had the same wound what would you do for yourself? Good luck
