    Another common verb to describe this is "ooze", sibu: The wound was oozing fluid. Or: Fluid was oozing from the wound.

    I would probably not use exude informally. I would use owlman's ooze or seep.
    Usage may vary, but I think of ooze as meaning a larger amount or a faster process than in seeping. If my wound seeped fluid, I would be happier than if it oozed fluid.:)
