Hello Welcome to XXXXXXX These are just the small skin tags at the site of stitches. Mostly absorbable sutures are used in circumcision and on being dissolved there remain small skin tags at suture site. These are absolutely normal. There is no need to worry. Thanks

Brief Answer: Hello again Detailed Answer: If this is very uncomfortable then please avoid wiping again and again and if that is not possible then wipe with soft cotton cloth only. You can clean with cotton and with mild anti septic like diluted savlon. This will prevent deposition of smegma again and again. Thanks

Brief Answer: Hello again Detailed Answer: Anal leakage is not a common problem, but such type of symptoms can occur due to some fistula or minor anal infection. You should start anti-biotic course inorder for anal infection. Describe your problem in detail whether there is blood discharge from the anus or its just sweating like discharge. If it is sweating like discharge and burning on anus then you can apply lecto-calamine lotion over affected area. This is absolutely normal and there is no reason to fear. Thanks
