How to Care For Your Baby’s Circumcision Aftercare

After undergoing a circumcision, it is important to apply petroleum jelly and apply a bandage to
the tip of the penis. The bandage will eventually fall off when the baby goes to urinate, providing
temporary protection. To prevent infection, you can apply petroleum jelly to the area between
diaper changes. If you have any concerns about how to care for your newborn’s circumcision,
call your pediatrician. He will be able to give you specific instructions.
The area around the penis should be kept clean for the first 24 hours. You should avoid applying
ointments to the incision area, as they don’t lubricate well. Anesthetic creams should not be
used as they do no provide pain relief. After 24 hours, you can begin introducing water to the
baby’s bath. You should avoid using bubble bath or salty water for at least three days. You can
also apply petroleum jelly at the site of the circumcision before you put the baby down to sleep.


Your doctor may apply a topical sedative to your foreskin if you have severe phimosis. In severe
cases, the surgeon may make a small incision in the foreskin. You will likely experience bleeding
around the incision for several days after the procedure. Talk to your doctor if excessive
bleeding occurs.
Your baby will likely bleed for three to seven consecutive days. While this is normal, it is
important that the ring remains moist. It is important to not remove the ring too early as it can
cause bleeding and smegma formation. Avoid tub baths for the first seven-days and avoid sex
for seven- to ten days following your baby’s circumcision.
Your pediatrician should discuss pain control measures such as swaddling with your baby
before he or she undergoes circumcision. Oral sugar solutions can also be helpful in relieving
pain. Your doctor should give you informed consent. This will explain why the procedure is
necessary and what the risks and possible alternatives are. This will ensure that you and your
baby know what to expect during and after the procedure.
If your baby is unconscious, your doctor can perform the procedure at the hospital. Because it is
hard for newborns to remain upright for too long, it is important that you ensure that your baby is
standing up straight. It is important to prepare the area thoroughly and use warm water and
gauze to clean the wound frequently. Ask your healthcare provider to prescribe antibiotics to
help manage the pain.
After you’ve been sedated, your doctor will perform this procedure. Then, he or she can explain
everything to you. Your doctor will also collect your medical history and eliminate any obvious
contra-indications. Talk to your doctor about all of your current medications and allergies. Your
doctor can answer any questions that you might have about circumcision. You should also
consult your doctor to find out how long the recovery will take.
While there are several risks associated with circumcision, the procedure is generally safe, and
can be done at any age. Many parents choose to let their children decide when they’re old
enough to undergo the procedure themselves. The bleeding should stop within a few days. If
your child had to be circumcised for any other reason, insurance will likely cover the costs. If you
donâ€TMt have insurance, however you may be eligible to find a doctor with low-cost coverage

that covers circumcision.
Although circumcision can be risky, there are very few risks involved. Most penises will look
normal after circumcision. However, some may not. This is normal anatomical variation that will
resolve over time. A few days or weeks after your baby’s circumcision, you should call your
doctor. Your doctor should be notified of any redness or swelling around the penis tip or
black/blue penis coloring.
You may notice a white or yellow patch over the area where the surgeon cut the penis. This is
called the glans, and it is related to normal healing. This discoloration can be mistakenly thought
to be infection by some physicians. It is normal and can persist for up to 2 weeks. Depending on

how severe the circumcision was, you might notice pink or salmon urine, or even a salmon-
colored urine. However, it’s worth noting that this is entirely benign. The glans will fade over

time, and the discoloration gradually will disappear.
