Pain When Urinating After Circumcision And Flatulence In Babies 2 Months?
, my son is 2 months old. just finished his circumcision using the clamping method. However it was still swollen and the shape of the penis was still not straight. When going to pee, the little brother first cried loudly. Only after that did he pee. His stomach was also bloated. Is there a connection between flatulence and pain when you urinate?
Hi Nasykha .. Thank you for the question given.
Circumcision / circumcision or in medical language is called circumcision has many benefits including: preventing phimosis / hard-to-pull foreskin and balanitis / inflammation of the head of the penis, the penis becomes easier to clean, reduces the risk of penile cancer, and when the child is an adult will reduce the risk of transmitting infectious diseases sexual. After circumcision it takes time for the scar to heal completely. In this healing process, the child may feel pain so that the child feels pain when BAK. After circumcision, the child's penis may appear reddish, swollen, but in infants this recovery process will be shorter than in adults. It is better if you keep giving enough fluids to the child so that the child's BAK is smoother. As well as maintaining the cleanliness of the child's penis area, do not forget to control again as long as there are still complaints in the area of the circumcision.
Meanwhile, flatulence in babies can be caused by:
due to the maturation process of the intestine
Lack of fluid intake so that children have difficulty defecating which often results in flatulence and abdominal pain
crying too long can result in a lot of air trapped in the child's stomach
If the complaint of flatulence and the child becomes fussy, the child becomes difficult to drink milk, there is still redness on the child's penis, then it's a good idea to have your child checked by a pediatrician to get a physical examination and direct treatment.
