blood coming from stitches 8 days post Circumcision

User Profile
I was circumcised 8 days ago, I have spots of blood coming from the stitches underneath my penis head, is it normal? I am getting full erections and its paining when I'm erect, but normal when flaccid.

I soak my penis 3 times a day in saltwater and dab it off with my cloth. When will I know when the stitches are ready to come out as it is quite irritating and prickly.

What should I do, I'm struggling to keep my penis in an upward direction to prevent swelling any advice on the, can I let my penis hang?

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Erection in between delay the healing process. The oozing blood from the stitched wound is normal and nothing to worry about. just care for the wound and avoid touching or friction. It shall resolve soon. maximum 2 weeks times it takes to get rid of the stitches.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
