Yesterday morning I had a circumcision.  I tried to test my erection.  It was 80% erect. It is not 100% because it is swollen and still healing?

Day 6 post circumcision-have I delayed healing process by accidently breaking off small bit of thick black scab on underside of penis?

Here are some ...: This Q was answered 5 minutes ago as follows: What you experienced isn't unusual. The surest act to follow is do nothing but keep the surgical site as clean & dry as possible with applying the betadine solution on it with soaked Q-tip 1-2 x daily until healed. So, in short, the "best" care is no care but the above & resisting temptation to pick it. But, if still in doubt, see Doc timely. ...Read more
