Can You Exercise And Wear Pants When The Penis Is Swollen After Circumcision?
, I am 18 years old and just started circumcision one week ago, the circumcision wound is dry but still swollen. Can I wear pants ?? can I do sports such as sit ups, running, pushups ?? if not, wait for the circumcision wound to look like new … thank you doc.
The condition of the penis that is still swollen indicates that the inflammatory process is still there, so you should not need to be too hasty to do activities that tend to cause pressure or friction on the penis area. Exercises such as sit ups, push-ups, and running have the potential to cause friction or pressure on the penis, so it is better if you wait until the penile tissue has healed, which is marked by no swelling, no pain, and no pus or blood, and no foul or fishy. It generally takes between 7-10 days as long as the wound is well maintained.
You are also expected to carry out post-circumcision wound care so that the recovery process is faster and there is no infection, namely by consuming to avoid using tight pants, then every day gently washing the penis area with clean water and soap then rinse again. And don't forget to take the medicines the doctor has given you.
