Thanks for your question.
The location of the biopsy makes it prone for more fluid exudation when you walk.
The walking and standing cause pooling of the blood at the ankles causing more leakage.
The leakage of the fluid is the filtered plasma ( a blood component) from the small blood vessels at the area.
This is part of normal healing process.
As long as the skin is aproximated and closed together, the sutures can be removed after 2 days.
To reduce the fluid you can use epsom salt which absorbs the fluid.
Also there is a special kind of dressing material called Calcium aalginate dressing.
Calcium alginate dressing materials can soak lot of fluid and often the leakage stops on using for few days.
Hence, you can try this.
This is not concerning.
You can expect good healing within a week.
If there is redness, pain or swelling, then suspect infection which needs antibiotic.
But currently you do not need to worry without these symptoms.
