when was your circumcision?

it sounds like the incision has opened up and needs more time for healing.

I would avoid mastubation for now until the area heals up better.

eating more protein, fruits and vegetables and avoiding gluten, white flour, sugar, soda, alcohol, processed foods can help you feel faster.
