How long does the soreness stay after a circumcision?

How long does the soreness stay after a circumcision?

It varies: It depends. If it's a child, I expect no soreness soon after circumcision in the same day. There may be some soreness when you change his diaper, but pulling on the scab. In adults, if you carefully change the dressing, there should be no major discomfort past that associated with the procedure and immediately thereafter. ...Read more

My frenulum tore during sex a few months ago and is still quite sore. I went to a urologist who recommended a circumcision. Is that too much for this?

Too much: All you need is is a frenulotomy or frenuloplasty which is a simple procedure which can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Good formula is:- apply of 4% Lidocaine cream, 30 minutes later inject a little novocaine, which will be painless. Then incise frenulum transversely ; suture it vertically. Takes care of problem ; preserves foreskin ; all without pain. ...Read more

My son is 22 months old and he has been circumcised. But recently he has been sore and doesn't look like he is circumcised. What could be the cause?

Adhesions: This is one of the most common things I see in this age group regarding male genitals. The penis in these fat little toddlers gets sucked down in and plays 'turtle'. If you don't pay attention and clean it properly, the skin on the shaft of the penis can trap the glans in it, and it gets red, swollen, irritated. Have doc show you how to expose the glans and properly clean to prevent adhesions. ...Read more

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.

The doctor keeps pulling back the forskin of my uncircumcised grandson till it's sore. Why? I never did with my sons forskin. My grandson was not circumcised becuase he didn't have enough forskin to do so. But the doctor keeps pulling back, what he does h

In: In the absence of symptoms, there is no reason for the doctor to retract your grandson's foreskin. Pulling the foreskin back before it is ready, can result in pain, swelling, bleeding and possibly scarring. The foreskin will loosen up naturally sometime between birth and puberty. If it is not retractable by puberty, he should see a physician for evaluation. ...Read more
