Brief Answer:
Apply Mupirocin ointment on the incision site

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

The incision site appears to be mildly infected with redness and a yellowish discharge. You can apply over the counter Mupirocin ointment.

It is an antibacterial ointment. Apply the ointment to the incision site 3 times daily. If you do not notice any improvement in next 48 hours, follow up with your primary care provider as you may need oral antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
