Photo might help: Brown patches skin on penis head after circumcision at 17 years old. Probably just a hyperpigmentation as you grow older. If that is the case you don't have much to worry about. On the other hand if you have any other urinary symtoms such as burning, red urine, irritation of the skin of penis, etc. It may be worthwhile to check with your doctor. A photograph may help. Thank you and good luck!!!

What can I use to wash my penis after circumcision?

What can I use to wash my penis after circumcision?

Simple Care: The good news is that by removing the excess foreskin, your penis has essentially become "self cleaning". Any scabs or other "dirt" should easily come off simply by showering and gentle cleaning. No scrubbing will be necessary. The good news is that that area has fantastic blood supply so healing will occur really fast.

My son's penis gets sore, red and sometimes bleeds, he is 15 not circumcised what can we do he says he has not been pulling back the skin to wash the area properly.

My son's penis gets sore, red and sometimes bleeds, he is 15 not circumcised what can we do he says he has not been pulling back the skin to wash the area properly.

Tight foreskin: This is called phimosis. He needs some prescription strength steroid cream to be applied twice daily to tight part of foreskin as he attempts to retract. Alternative would be circumcision or prepucioplasty which is surgical procedure incising thru tight area of skin vertically & suturing it transversely. A urologist can advise.

Why is my penis really sensitive after circumcision?

Why is my penis really sensitive after circumcision?

Glans now uncovered: Glans or head of penis is most sensitive area. Uncircumcised, glans was covered (protected) from rubbing against clothes or from your hand if & when you masturbated or had sex. Glans is now exposed all the time and will be more sensitive for a while. This will settle down with time. Try & be patient.

How do I fix the discoloration on penis from my circumcision?

How do I fix the discoloration on penis from my circumcision?

Several things: First, it's not uncommon to have some pigment changes related to a surgery like a circumcision. If that's truly the case, you are better of just learning to work around the cosmetic issues that comes with something like this; I won't deny that it may be bothersome cosmetically. Do make sure this is really circumcision related and not something like vitiligo. Talk with your doctor about this.

Where should the circumcision line on my upcoming sons' penis be?

Below the glans: The "tip" of the penis is the glans, the smooth part. The foreskin is cut around that, and then falls back to the shaft, allowing the glans to stand out with the rim of the glans visible (it looks purplish usually). Sometimes there is slight re-adhesion of the foreskin to the glans, but we don't get too worried, those usually relieve themselves with future erections.

What do you suggest to regain sensation in my penis after circumcision?

If I were to get an adult circumcision, how much would it change what my penis feels like? Any pros or cons?

If I were to get an adult circumcision, how much would it change what my penis feels like? Any pros or cons?

Common issue: This was the most common requested elective surgery when I was in the service. Sailors working in hot engine rooms often had recurrent infections.That stops when the foreskin is not there to trap sweat/germs. It also eliminates the chance the foreskin could slip down & constrict like a tourniquet & amputate part of the penis. Requires anesthesia, significant downtime & pain. Sensations remain great

I have a penis that curves to the left due to an circumcision at a late age. Is there anything to worry about?

I have a penis that curves to the left due to an circumcision at a late age. Is there anything to worry about?

Probably not.: Function and cosmetics are the two issues at play. If your function is not limited by the degree of curvature you describe, no correction is required. The same principle is true for cosmetics - consider the risks of repair over the benefits, and I suspect you will not require any treatment.

How do fix the discoloration on my penis from circumcision don't tell me to live with it and yes im sure its a circumcision issue?

Here are some...: So many things in life are not what we like but still what we need to live on; that is reality to conform: Life is a constant struggle to cope with reality, certainty, & uncertainty of daily living for survival, growth, and continuation from inception to eternity. So, see pro-evaluation to balance medical necessity with professional possibility before doing something. Best wish. ..

Does circumcision help prevent penis odor?

Yes: Circumcision can help prevent some of the odor by preventing the buildup of smegma but good hygiene habits are just as important. Circumcision at birth does reduce the risk of penile cancer to almost zero.
