Good Evening.
This is an infrequent sequel to circumcision, and happens when circumcision is done for unretractable foreskin beneath which there has been build up of smegma, which is the whitish substance normally produced in that area.
Luckily, most infections in that area do respond well to antibiotic treatment and local cleaning and dressing.
Unless there is persistent bleeding, which should be reported immediately to the doctor, you can try the medicines which have been prescribed and see how things are. If you feel that the lesion is getting worse, or if you have fever or bleeding, you should get access to a better care immediately. Most surgeons use catgut sutures which might be apparently sticking out of the wound, but usually they do not cause trouble, and will eventually fall off.
Hope I have been able to help you.

Respected sir can u tell me about why ointment debridace(papain-urea debriding ointment) was given to me and what it will do sir

I personally have never had to use this ointment in my practice, but I imagine it's role is to make easy the removal of the surface dead tissue which we call debridement, and thereby cleaning and dressing of the wound becomes better.
This will help the antibiotics reach the healthy tissue without impediment, and aid in regeneration of new tissue.

Under normal circumstances, diet has no relation to healing of the wound unless you are a diabetic. So you probably can eat the kind of food that you want to have.
