How To Deal With The Skin And Head Of The Penis Attached After Circumcision?
Last night, last week, my son was circumcised. Tomorrow the skin area was swollen. But after the swelling had diminished and healed, even the skin and the head of the penis were sticking. How could the solution be disturbing or not?
Thank you for the question.
Swelling in the penis generally occurs naturally when appearing in the first days after circumcision. As long as no pus appears, odor, or prolonged bleeding from the circumcised former area, this swelling generally arises due to mild inflammation that can improve as long as appropriate treatment is given according to doctor's advice.
The attachment between the foreskin and the head of the penis after circumcision is usually natural because of the wound healing process. This is nothing to worry about, especially if your child does not experience other complaints, such as pain, erection problems, urination problems, or abnormal penis shape (for example, curved or like being pulled to one side). Most likely, this will not cause serious complications in the future. The important thing is, you make sure that your child's intimate area is always clean, that is, by making sure your child is showering diligently, cleaning his genitals well after urinating, and changing his underwear at least twice a day.
However, if this makes you very worried, it would not hurt you to have your child re-examined by a doctor, pediatrician, or surgeon for further evaluation regarding his condition.
I hope this helps.
