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 !!! ...Read more

Vaseline: Apply vaseline around circumcision with each diaper change until healed, including until plastibell ring (if used) falls off. Withhold diapers on a temporary basis if tip of penis around urinary opening looks red or inflammed, and place baby on a towel and place towels aound crib, until redness has cleared up. This is to avoid later meatal stenosis (narrowing of urinary opening). ...Read more

See a peds urologist: Revision circumcisions are one of the most frequent operation performed by pediatric urologists. Too much skin is a frequent problem and can easily be correct with a simple outpatient procedure. Risks are involved are those associated with a general anesthesia and surgical risks (bleeding, infection - very very unlikely). ...Read more

I did not have any artificial circumcision . My age is 23. The skin streches back but not fully like it should form a mushroom structure at the top?

It's your choice: About 10% of men have a significant problem because the foreskin will not retract, and many more have some restriction. It is your choice whether to be circumcised. It is easier to keep clean / avoid some infections, the risk of gangrene from a foreskin trapped backwards is eliminated, many women prefer it, and some men oppose circumcision of children on grounds of autonomy. ...Read more

See answer : Phimosis refers to the inability to adequately retract the distal foreskin over the glans penis. One to five percent of males will have nonretractible foreskins by age 16 years. 0.1 -0.05% Betamethasone dipropionate applied to the preputial orifice twice a day for up to 4-6 weeks accompanied by gentle, manual retraction/stretching of the foreskin. Circumcision reserved for persistent phimosis. ...Read more

Might be getting a circumcision soon, the idea of it freaks me out, sensation, looks, exposure. Idk if i could handle the head just being out in pants?

Discuss with your Dr: Dr's job includes giving necessary emotional support. See an other dr if yours does not provide this. Quite normal for any man to feel he is freaking out at prospect of a circumcision. However, don't have it done if only for cosmetic reasons. ...Read more

What do I do next after a circumcision? I had a circumcision done a few months ago after being diagnosed with bxo. I still don't have all of my feeling back and it still does not extend fully because i don't have enough skin left i think. Im using bacetra

Penile sensation: should have fully returned by now & penis should extend fully. Worst case scenario is that too much shaft skin was removed plus ? penile nerves may have been damaged during surgery. Would consider seeing an independent urologist, in an other town, who in no way is connected with surgeon who performed the circumcision. This will insure an unbiased opinion. ...Read more
