Circumcision: Is there increased redness, swelling, & pain along with the "pus"? Is pus clear or opaque?

After my hydrocelectomy I tried to show and one of my stitches was broke when I was removing the gauze What should I do?

After my hydrocelectomy I tried to show and one of my stitches was broke when I was removing the gauze What should I do?

Leave incision alone: After an uneventful hydrocelectomy, doing nothing but leaving the surgical site alone by just keeping there dry would be the most reasonable care. In other words, no care is the best care because nothing can change surgical site beneath the skin after the edges of incision are approximated and sealed. More? Ask your doc timely.

5 ds ago I've a small superficial burndt steam I put mebo, today I cover it e vaseline gauze for 3 hrs&after removing it I found small blister why this?

Its a burn: Don't cover it with vaseline gauze. Pop the blister and then cover the entire wound in bacitracin. Do that 2x per day and cover it with fluff gauze and tape if it is deep (if it is superficial, don't cover it)....Until it heals. Blisters often occur in burns. (i do wound care so that is what we do to wounds and it works). ...Read more

What's the best circumcision style on adults? High and tight? Are there any pros to removing frenulum? I have a phimosis.

Sleeve resection: Permits surgeon to remove exactly correct amount of skin & is cosmetically the best circumcision. Dividing or removing frenulum prevents tugging on glans during sex & in my opinion is thus is more comfortable than leaving it behind, especially if it's tight. ...Read more

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

Mostly very safe: Provided the surgeon, pediatrician, obstetrician or mohel is well trained and careful. I believe plastibell method, where the redundant foreskin is tied off over a small plastic ring is the safest because risk of bleeding is very slight. Correct size plastibell ring must be selected and a frenular bleed should be cauterized. (check google. Com). Clamp method usually safe, but risk of bleed more. ...Read more

Should I get a circumcision or am I too old now?

Depends: I'im assuming you're male even though the tag is "denise", females do not get circumcisions generally speaking, certainly not in this country. That said, the question is why, and what is the goal? If you're genuinely considered about health or cosmetic appearance, then you can consult a urologist. There is more healing time than as a baby, but it's possible. ...Read more

Why is the circumcision popular among the american men?

Personal preference: A few cite easier hygiene, decreased std's over a lifetime, elimination of foreskin cancer, etc. The main factor seems to be personal preference.
