Post-Circumcision problems

So I got circumcised 11 days ago because i had very bad phimosis and it was the only option. Swelling wise it was never very bad only swolen around the frenelum area. The only real problem is that it's leaking quite a bit of yellowish slime/liquid and because of it I have to use vaseline so it won't get stuck to my underwear, which you probably can understand doesnt exactly feel great when it gets stuck.

So my question is if I should be concerned about this and if I need to go see my doctor or if it is normal?

If it is nothing to be concerned about and just normal, is there anything I can do to stop it from leaking or what you would call it?

(Sorry about my English but it is not my first language)

Mine was leaking up to about day 10 - I initially dressed it and then removed the dressing in the shower as the water helped the bits that had become stuck. If it's sore/red though there's no harm in getting a day-appointment with your GP who may prescribe you some antibiotic cream to be safe. I would also suggest keeping the area aired as much as possible.

If the yellowish liquid is accompanied by redness, pain and fever it is infected and needs antibiotics, but that is very unlikely to happen. More likely its just a natural body reaction and there is not much you can do as it is most likely part of the healing process. All you can do is keep your penis clean and keep changing gauzes with vaseline on. 11 days is still really early after the circumcision and if your only swelling is only around the frenulum area count yourself lucky :)

Ok thank you! I don't have a fever or anything like that so I don't think it's infected.

It is normal for yellowish lymph fluid to leak through the incision until it heals, which usually take about two weeks.
