Pus Appeared On The Back Of The Penis Head After Circumcision 10 Days Ago?
Hi Doctor, r nI am 14 years old and have performed circumcision 10 days ago. Why is there pus on the back of the head of my penis? But when he went to the doctor, the doctor did not say there was a problem or infection. Is this okay ?. And again why it has been 10 days since circumcision but the swelling in my ring area is still large? I use the klamp circumcision method, and if I may know how to make the swelling deflated quickly? The problem is very disturbing because I already want to go to school. R nPlease answer yes!
Hello, Thank you for the question.
In general, the fluid that appears in areas of the body is said to be pus if the fluid is thick with a yellowish or greenish color and smells bad accompanied by signs of infection in the surrounding area such as redness, swelling, and pain. After circumcision or circumcision, usually the former circumcision area will experience swelling which will subside in 2-3 weeks. This swelling is something that is normal, as a local inflammatory reaction if it is not accompanied by signs of infection. However, if other signs of infection appear, of course this condition requires further examination. You can return to consult with your doctor about the fluids that you observe in this circumcision scar. If necessary, you can ask for a second opinion from another doctor. If the swelling is caused by an infection, the infection should be treated first. However, if it is caused by tissue inflammation then you can apply warm compresses to the swollen area to help reduce the swelling. You must be careful applying warm compresses to this area because the genital area is a sensitive area. Please keep this circumcision scar clean and dry. Clean the discharge with clean damp gauze.
Hope this information is useful.
