Day 7 post circumcision- is it normal for minor bleeding 2 occur through thick black scab on underside of penis?
Circumcision: Surgical incisions may take up to a week to heal. Given the nature of the skin around the glans penis, there could be a small patch of skin that is "necrosing", which is probably the black that you see. If that is part of the remaining foreskin then there is no need to worry as it will just fall off. But if it is part of the normal penis skin, then I recommend having it evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Day 9 post circ - incision line on top part of penis has little or no scabbing as top foreskin is bunching up 2 prevent any gap showing? Fused?

Have bumps on scrotum that had a fluid inside they burst now and are scabing up and are painful, also have small bumps with black center on penis?
So my boyfriend notices 5 bumps on his penis hours after we had sex. They have clear liquid and when popped they scab over. They aren't clustered.
Not exactly sure about what it is but a few thoughts: The timing of the appearance of the blisters would suggest that it is related to friction/trauma from intercourse, however it seems a little unusual that there would be 5 distinct blisters, in which, the timing factor may just have been coincidental. There are a few STDs that have this appearance and it never hurts to get checked. ...Read more
