A 30-year-old member asked:

Is it okay to have a yellow discharge, and to have slight oozing of blood from, what i think are, scabs on the head, 4/5 days after the operation?

It is not: Yellow discharge ( pus ) mostly is indicative of infection . I would advise you to contact your surgeon and inform what is happening . Wish you rapid recovery.
