Hi guys, I'm 17 years old and got circumcised around 9 days ago. The first three days of recovery were fine and normal, but around the fourth to the present day, the skin around my stitches has been bleeding. I read that this was completely normal so I didn't complain at first, however, it's been the ninth day and my sleep has been disrupted countless times. The area always gets so itchy even if I shower, not to mention, my swelling is diminishing very slowly. My three other brothers were circumcised, but I'm the only one experiencing as much bleeding and sleeping problems. There is no real pain, just occasional tickles and disturbances which I'm becoming very impatient about. Especially the swelling. I can never sleep in a comfortable position because I always ha e to face head-up and pull my loose shorts up as I'm laying down. My sleeps are in almost 2-hour cycles of me getting disturbed.
So has anyone else had a similar experience? How long until the area around my stitches stops bleeding? And how much longer can I expect the swelling to bother my sleep?
