Here are some...: Following post-circumcision instruction to regularly keep the redundant foreskin everted for cleansing & drying until heal-up. But don't do it overjealously. If more concerned, have the surgeon take a look at to make sure of no infection if swelling and redness persist and worsen.

Not uncommon: Young males have enough baby fat on their upper thighs and pelvic area that the barb of the penis is often hidden within the skin folds. As baby gets more mobile and starts to lean down, this gradually becomes less of an issue.
