If the najis that comes out can’t be stopped or it keeps coming out like blood or pus that keeps coming out like wet diabetes, then it’s legal to wash it and it’s legal to pray. However, after bathing, it is obligatory to clean the place where the dirt comes out or cover it with cotton and cloth so that it doesn’t come out continuously.
