The Tip Of The Penis Is Sticky Until The Wound Appears After Circumcision?
my child has to be circumcised but the tip of the penis is sticky until the wound develops, what is the cure for it
Hello Bagoes Sadewo,
Circumcision is the process of cutting off part of the skin that covers the glans penis. The aim is for hygiene, it's easier to clean the penis and no dirt builds up inside the skin. Other circumcision indications are the obligation of adherents of certain religions, the presence of phimosis or paraphimosis, recurrent penile head infections. Circumcision can also reduce the risk of penile cancer.
There are various circumcision methods that can be done, namely removing the skin by making an incision using a scalpel or scissors or electrocautery and then sewing the skin with the mucosa using thread. Another method is to use plastic clamps or rings.
Generally, the circumcised penis skin stitches are 1-2 cm from the neck of the penis head. Risks that can occur from circumcision procedures are:
Increased risk of meatitis, which is inflammation of the urine hole
Hardening of the skin in circumcision scars
After circumcision, good wound care is needed to speed up the healing process and prevent infection. Some tips on post-circumcision wound care are as follows:
Wear loose pants
Wash your hands before touching the penis
Keep the bandage wound clean
Avoid heavy activities
Dry the penis with a tissue after urinating
Perform control in accordance with the specified time
Take medicines that have been prescribed by your doctor
New wounds that arise on the tip of the penis after circumcision should be examined first to the doctor to determine the diagnosis. One complication that can occur after circumcision is meatitis (inflammation of the voiding hole at the tip of the penis) due to irritation. Children often complain of pain when urinating or urinating. Treatment of injuries to the penis itself should be treated according to the cause. Some types of topical drugs or solutions that are often used in the treatment of penile wounds are antibiotic ointments, antiseptic solutions (povidone iodine, chlorhexidine), normal saline solutions, and petroleum jelly. Always clean the penis well and dry it before using these medicines. Clean the penis before using the next dose of medicine. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
