Children Fall After 7 Days After Circumcision?
Night, my son has just been circumcised now on the 7th day and earlier he ran and fell.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
In your child's condition, pay attention if after falling on the surgical wound there is one or more of the following:
Bleeding Open stitches (or post-suture wounds that open when the stitches have been removed) Purulent wounds (yellowish discharge) The wound is more painful than before Bruises at the impact area Wounds exposed to unclean dirt or water, I suggest you get your child checked right away to a general practitioner for further examination and actions according to the condition of the wound, such as cleaning the wound, closing the wound, suturing it if necessary (if the case of loose stitches or the wound opens again wide / deep), or administering drugs to treat pain or infection. Wounds that reopen, if not treated properly, can pose a risk of infection.
Here are things you should do at home to keep your child's wound clean and support the wound's healing:
Keep the wound area clean, avoid exposure to dirt or unclean water on the wound. If it has been allowed by the doctor to treat the wound yourself at home (for example the wound has closed enough), you can use a physiological saline solution (NaCl 0.9%) to clean Your child's wound and cover it with sterile gauze Wash your hands thoroughly every time you treat your child's wound. If there is dry liquid on the wound, put sterile gauze filled with physiological fluid on the dry liquid to clean it, avoid rubbing movements because it is feared that it will become a new wound. contains high protein such as meat, seeds, fruits and vegetables, milk, to support the regeneration of cells damaged by wounds so that wounds heal quickly. If there is a wound condition that is more painful than usual, the area around it is red, yellowish pus, bleeding, or a wound that opens again after the stitches / stitches are opened prematurely, consult a doctor immediately.
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon for your child :)
