Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Have you experienced any trauma / accident that caused the need for suturing the wound? Or did you undergo circumcision / circumcision before?
The appearance of pus and pain in the wound can be a marker of infection. However, this still requires a direct examination in advance by the doctor. You are advised to check directly to the doctor or surgeon so that it can be evaluated and handled appropriately.
As a recommendation, it is recommended to keep the wound in a clean and fairly dry condition. Avoid pulling the thread yourself because it risks giving access to germs to contaminate the wound and cause infection. To help reduce pain, while not yet going to the doctor, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use listed on the drug packaging. Avoid strenuous activities during the recovery period. Don't forget to eat balanced nutritious food regularly.
