My son was circumcised, who initially used the aliplamp method and failed to remove it and recommended it to a conventional suture or circumcision. He experienced inflammation n swelling in the suture n the tip of the head of the penis accompanied by swelling. How to handle what should I do.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Circumcision or circumcision is a medical procedure that involves removing the foreskin or skin on the tip of the penis. People's goals for doing this vary, it could be for reasons of culture, religion, aesthetics, and individual preferences. What is clear from the health side, circumcision has a good impact.
After circumcision, it is normal for the penis to experience inflammation and mild swelling, which depending on age, the swelling can last anywhere from 5 days to 3 weeks. This condition is indeed due to the presence of injured tissue, the body is triggered to release chemicals which we see in the end as inflammation that is red, swollen and painful.
Of course, this inflammation is not always normal. The characteristics of abnormal inflammation are when the inflammation lasts too long, inflammation is followed by bleeding, inflammation is followed by your child becoming difficult to urinate or feeling uncomfortable when urinating ('wadding'), discharge of pus, or the like. If this happens, then immediately consult a surgeon for further treatment. However, if this is not the case, it means that your child's condition is still safe and you don't need to worry.
What you can do at home is help your child maintain cleanliness, apply petroleum jelly to prevent the tip of the penis from sticking to the pants, take pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs that have been prescribed, prevent your child from playing bicycles first, and provide protein-rich foods such as milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, tempeh, tofu, seafood and beef to help the healing process. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
