Maybe: It takes time for wounds to fully heal. The clear yellowish fluid is almost certainly lymph. You can place a bandaid over it. It will eventually seal itself closed or the next time you see your doc he/she can close it if is really wide.

Probably fine: After 6 weeks, your incision should be healed and able to handle light activity. I am assuming that your surgeon has evaluated your incision as well. Some stretching of the incision can initially lead to some stinging feelings. If in doubt tho, call your doctor and have the incision looked at.

Few conditions.: Are you working with any chemicals/allergic to any soap, detergents, perfumes etc. Some of the common things in the hands are exzemas which can leak some liquid, but more of a straw /amber coloured, scabies an infestation by a parasite-common in the spaces between the digits, more itching in nights than day time, and also things like pustules - we call impetigo from staph infection. See your doc first.

I was in a wreck a month ago. 3in facial laseration its healing but around it is numb and its leaking yellow fluid. What could cause this?

I was in a wreck a month ago. 3in facial laseration its healing but around it is numb and its leaking yellow fluid. What could cause this?

Complications: Since the laceration was deep enough to require suturing, most likely it was deep enough to cut some of the tiny nerves that provide sensation to the injured area. These tiny nerves eventually heal in most cases but can take several months. The leaking of fluid concerns me more and might indicate that part of the laceration isn't healing properly. Get it checked out.
