Hi Ai, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Circumcision wound usually takes 7-10 days before the wound will start to dry, and it takes up to about 3 weeks before it is completely healed. If your child had just been circumcised last Thursday, then it would be perfectly normal for the wound to be dry. Perform treatment according to instructions from the doctor. Make sure you wash your hands with soap before treating or cleaning a wound, clean it carefully and not rubbing it harshly, and make sure the bandage doesn't get wet. If the bandage is wet with water or urine, change the bandage immediately. Control returns to his doctor within the specified time.
Watch for the following signs of infection, if you see signs of infection, go to the doctor immediately:
the skin around the wound becomes red, swollen, and painful to the touch
the wound opens again after it has closed before
pus or foul-smelling discharge from the wound
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
