On average, how long will a circumcised penis take to desensitise in an 18yr old boy?

Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Complete 4 - 6 weeks: However should be desensitised enough to wlk about comfortably after a week or two. Worth applying vaseline to any sutures present. Absorbable gut sutures should have been used. Vaseline will prevent sutures from getting caught on underwear.
