The wound will heal itself and there are no risks in circumcision healing. There are very few
chances of complications like infections or wound dehiscence. The area where the cut was
made is usually yellow or green for about two weeks. The area behind the eyes will become
swollen but will heal on its own. Within a week, your circumcision wound has been sealed.
The incision will appear red and tender immediately following the procedure. This is normal and
will disappear on its own. The incision will feel less tender the second day. Bright red is the
penis shaft and head. In some cases, the ring will bleed a few drops. The scab that forms at the
incision site should come off on its own, and the Plastibell (plastic ring) should fall off on its own.
It’s not a good idea to pull it off, as this could cause bleeding.
The first few days following a circumcision are not very painful. After the procedure, there will be
a small scab that covers the wound. The ring should fall off in seven to ten days. After that, a
Plastibell is attached to the wound. It is possible to cause bleeding if the ring is not removed
promptly. Plastibells will remain on for another week in case of bleeding. If your child does not
have a plastic band, the scab will be removed on its own.
The first few days following a circumcision will feel a little tender. It’s okay to rub the incision with
Vaseline, but don’t try to rub it until it is completely dry. The next seven days should be spent
without bathing your child. If your baby is in pain, call the doctor immediately. The doctor will
determine if it needs pain medication. Your baby should be able shed a few drops after the
surgery. Any bleeding that occurs should stop once the scab falls off.
Your baby may experience several stages of healing after a circumcision. Some discomfort may
occur for a few weeks, but it is normal. Most babies will sleep well and not feel any discomfort.
It’s important to note that the wound may bleed for several days after the procedure. The baby’s
recovery is best if the wound heals within the first few days.
Despite the potential for infection, circumcision can be performed quickly and is not considered
to be a serious procedure. During this period, your baby will bleed a few drops. The wound
should be monitored for the first seven days to avoid any complications. A few drops will be
normal and you will be able resume urination within 12 hours. A scab will form around your
incision. However, the incision itself is still very bright.
There are a few days of recovery required after a circumcision. The wound may bleed a little bit,
but it will heal within seven days. The head and shaft of the penis are red, and the body will be
skin-colored. Keep the area clean, especially around your penis. Warm water can be used to
clean the area. You should not use lotions or powders on the affected area. These can cause
irritation. Tub baths should be avoided for at least seven days following surgery.
Your baby will have some blood the first day after a circumcision. You need to be very careful
and avoid rubbing the wound. Although the area is not painful, you might want to keep a towel or
a cloth nearby to clean it. The plastic ring is typically removed between seven and fourteen days.
The ring will hang on to a small piece tissue and then fall off by itself. The first week after
surgery, it is best to avoid exposing the area water.
While complications can arise after a circumcision there are very few and usually mild. Infections
of this nature are rare. One in 200 circumcised boys will not get an infection. For the first few
weeks, the incision will be red. After seven to ten days, a scab will form around the incision site.
The Plastibell will start to fall off after the first week. This is important, as you can cause bleeding
if the Plastibell is pulled off.
