Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Circumcision or circumcision is a form of surgery that is performed by removing the foreskin or skin covering the penis for health reasons. Among the benefits of circumcision are reducing the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, reducing the risk of penile cancer, and maintaining better penis health and hygiene.
After circumcision, among what you can pay attention to are:
Avoiding strenuous activities such as strenuous exercise, jogging, and diving to prevent the stitches from opening
It is normal for the penis to be red, bruised and swollen for up to about 10 days in babies and young children. As you get older, healing can take up to a month
For a faster recovery, wear loose pants or sarongs and avoid wearing underpants
Take the pain medication prescribed by your doctor
Routine control to the doctor for wound care
In your case, depending on your age and your body's ability to heal, 2 weeks could be sufficient or less time for the circumcision wound to dry completely. What you need to know also, some circumcision sutures may come loose due to friction or pull, but if this happens after the wound dries up, then it doesn't matter because the purpose of the stitches is to hold the wound together. If the wound is dry, there is nothing more to tape.
However, if the wound is wet or in the form of a scab again, further examination is needed. Because open wounds make you more susceptible to bacterial infections, they should be closed immediately even if they don't bleed. Because stopping bleeding is not the only function of the stitches, it also prevents external infections.
Our advice, to avoid misunderstanding, return control of your circumcision scar to the doctor who treats you, because the wound is dry or not must be seen directly. In addition, you should immediately see a doctor if there is bleeding that doesn't stop, the penis is still swollen, you have a fever, pus drains from the scar, and you feel pain when urinating.
Meanwhile, keep the surgical scar clean by regularly changing the bandage and not letting it get wet, taking painkillers, and increasing the consumption of protein-rich foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, meat and tempeh to help the healing process. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
