The Cause Of The Penis Entering After The Baby Is Circumcised?
In the afternoon I want to ask. My son at the age of 2 days has been circumcised … now it’s 6 months old, but all of his genitals are included … is that normal / not ???
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, is your child male? Or girl?
In boys, circumcision is known to have many health benefits. By removing the foreskin that covers the head of the penis, the risk of infection, both infection of the skin of the penis and infection of the urinary tract can be greatly reduced. Not only that, the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer transmission to women can also be minimized by circumcision. However, this is not the case with girls. Until now, further research needs to be done regarding the benefits of circumcision for girls. Circumcision in girls actually has the risk of causing injury to the reproductive organs, both mild to severe. Therefore, the recommendation of the IDAI (Indonesian pediatrician association), girls should not be circumcised.
If your child is a boy, then the correct circumcision procedure should not allow the genitals to enter. On very rare occasions, a circumcision scar can leave scar tissue that causes the penis to be pulled inward, as if it were in. However, it could also be, a penis that looks like it is getting into as you mentioned is caused by other factors, for example:
Being obese (the accumulation of fat on the right and left sides of the penis can make the penis appear small as if it is going inside)
Congenital abnormalities (birth defects)
Hormonal disorders (related to a lack of the hormone testosterone)
Peyronie's disease (the formation of scar tissue plaque that pulls on the penis, can be associated with injury), and so on
You need to get your child checked directly to a doctor or pediatrician so that it can be further evaluated, whether the condition they are experiencing is still considered normal or not. In reasonable conditions, for example, if a complaint occurs due to your child's fat posture, of course there is no special handling that needs to be done. However, if your child's complaints occur due to other causes, further treatment can be done, including surgery, hormonal therapy, and so on.
Hope it helps ..
