Circumcision Infection

I got circumcised more than 3 weeks ago and I think I recently got an infection. Two days ago I went to the doctor and he told me I had no infection. To me, it looks infected - it is yellow and there is a red area around the scab. Should I take antibiotics? I've already had two check-ups so I don't really want to have a 3rd.

Hi A, Redness round any wound is a sign of healing and means its healthy, if you have something that's open and yellow puss is coming out and it smells then is the time to worry.

Are you keeping up with your warm water sea salt wash's, this is a great way to aid the healing.

There's no puss coming out but it looks yellow. No liquid is oozing out of the wound. It's a scab on the head where skin peeled off. I've been using an antiseptic powder that was prescribed by the doctor.

I don't think we can express much of an opinion without seeing it. Perhaps you should see another doctor.

Regular cleaning in warm salt bath should help.

Update: It wasn't an infection, and the peeling wound is closing up. All good.
