Circumcision Wound Healing On The 3rd Day?
, my child is circumcised at age 1 6th and follows mass circumcision. 4 days ago, circumcised. Already control the third day but he said fine good healthy. On day five, it has begun to dry and the seams are peeling like peeling skin, is that okay? And whether the seams will loose themselves or become flesh? If it is loose, is there help such as a warm bath when bathing in the afternoon and morning. Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Circumcision (circumcision, circumcision) is useful for a man because it can help keep the penis clean and avoid infection. With circumcision, your child's risk of developing penile cancer, and transmitting cervical cancer to his partner will be even smaller. Provided that circumcision is carried out by professional medical personnel, often this action is not dangerous, and rarely also leaves serious complications.
The threads used for circumcision can vary in type, some can be absorbed by the body and then become flesh, but some must be opened manually after stitching together properly. The person who knows this best is the doctor who circumcised your child. As for your child's skin that peels around the stitches, as long as it is not accompanied by signs of severe inflammation around the stitches (such as redness, swelling, pain, watering, or suppurating), often this is not also a dangerous condition. You can overcome this condition first by:
Clean your child's penis regularly with a sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl
If there is peeling skin, do not force exfoliated, especially if rubbed excessively
Give your child post-circumcision treatment as recommended by the doctor
No need to bathe in excessive warm water when bathing, just bathe your child diligently morning and evening, keep the penis always clean, do not come in contact with irritating soap, and always wear loose clothing
Ask your child to rest and not to over-move
Ask your child to eat a variety of nutritionally balanced foods and drink enough so that the body's endurance remains excellent
Do not carelessly give children other drugs except those prescribed by a doctor
If the peeling on the skin of your child's penis appears very striking, or other signs of inflammation appear as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check it back to the doctor, pediatrician, or surgeon who circumcised him. Worried, the condition of the penis like this indicates a secondary infection, or other skin inflammation (for example due to contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis) that needs further treatment from the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
