Sticky white discharge under the swollen ring beneath the penile head on resting it upwards, had circumcision recently. Is it normal?

Hey, im 15 and I just got circumcised due to tight foreskin 4 days ago, just a couple hours ago i realized that under the swollen ring beneath the head of the penis there is some white sticky discharge that is being released. I noticed that it happens when i let my penis rest facing upwards and was wondering if this was normal.

Thanks for choosing HCM.
You have to clean the part with a wet towel dipped in hot water & give fomentation.
Apply some antibiotic cream given by your surgeon for a week.
This should settle the problem in a week.
Take care.

Hi Andy,

Welcome to healthcare magic!
Due to raw surface of circumcision a serous exudate is expected for a day or two but day four means there may be a problem related to local infection, and if that is the case can cause scarring and bending of penis shaft in long run.
Please review to your surgeon, I think slight local care and dressing and an antibiotic is all that is required for some time.

I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
