General & Family Physician Dr. Jitender Chauhan's  Response
Hello, welcome to HCM. The white discharge is significant. It signifies infection in the wound. You should immediately bring it to notice of your concerned doctor. Till then you should try not to wet the area and keep it clean but cleanning it with betadine solution using a sterile gauze piece if dressing is not there. wish you good health.
