Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. The leakage of fluid is not concerning. This is expected and there is no need to be stressed. This doesn't indicate an infection. you should use over the counter available tablet Aleve 500 mg twice daily for 5 days and things will start improving soon. You can clean the fluid with just any over the counter available antiseptic solution. I reassure you that this leakage is expected and not serious. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
