Is this normal? *warning photo included* NSFW!

Hey! To keep everything short and simple, I got circumcised in January, during the healing period, after around 80 days I realised that my stitches cracked up (GOT RIPPED).

I just had my second circumcision 4 days ago, friday last week. The 23rd. It was done by the same doctor. I am really scared that something is wrong! I occasionally get this "light brown-red" looking liquid from the part I marked as #1 on the picture. !!!Please keep in mind that I just put Vaseline on the wound!!! This also happened when my stitches did not heal correctly due to them ripping. I also have a "bump", like a boulder, where I'm pretty sure the skin is healing together with the rest of the penis shaft. I marked this "boulder" or small "mountain" as #2, blue on the image. I do not want to pull the skin down, as it's only been 4 days. What should I do? Should I pull down the skin anyways to see if it healed correctly? Is the liquid normal coming from the wound? When should I "pull down" the skin to see if the wound has been fully healed? I do not want to rip/crack it!

You can also see the thread, which I think is normal for being in such low state. I am seeking help!

Thanks for all answers, I'm really scared that something is wrong.

I should also mention that my penis is extremely small flaccid, around 4cm, however, when erect it's 15-16cm. Is this an issue? I can also not pull the skin anymore further down now as it will start to hurt. Thanks for all serious replies, I do appreciate it a lot as I am very worried about this situation

The liquid can be part of healing. It could also be an infection but that would usually be accompanied by foul smell, pain, redness and potentially fever as the body tries to fight the infection. However the slightly yellowish liquid could be also part of natural healing as that occurs as well. The brownish part of it is probably mixed dried blood that is being "flooded" out. If it hurts to expose the incision part by pulling down the skin then don't do it and give it some time. If you are in the US you can try to put Neosporin around the shaft. Apply it twice or thrice a day. Don't over do it though.

You will have to clarify "2nd" circumcision as there only is one circumcision ... after which there is nothing left to circumcise. Did you just mean re-stitching ?

Yeah , just re stictching due to it ripping. I also don't have as much of a Boulder to the right part, is that normal? It feels like the skin is already pulled down the most it can be, compared to the left side part

You can have different kinds of swelling on different side of the penis, it can react differently so its nothing unusual. If I recall correctly my left side was slightly different to my right side for a while but in normalised in time. So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Thank you, I actually belive this is gonna work out now, haha. I'm always extremely sceptical. I just tried pulling it down even further and I saw the thread, however, I didn't pull as for so I could see the wound(stiches). Thanks for the serious answers btw, you seem skilled in this topic.

You can't be really "skilled" in going through a circumcision xD. It's just personal experience. Good luck with it.

I had this too. It all settles down. I am sorry I hadn't my circumcision done years ago.

Man that is looking good and nothing appears out of the ordinairy. Just let it be...the more it heals and seals, the fluid and soreness pressure will go down, and your shaft skin will lower itself and reveal your treasurable incision fuse. Don't let no water slide down in there, only wash your outer penis and scrotum for a few more days. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PULL BACK YOUR OUTER SHAFT SKIN NOW, as you will cause more disturbance to your injured soft tissue and fluid pressure
