Circumcision Care

circumcision tools

In the immediate post-operative period, circumcision care consists of placing vaseline on the penis and close observation. It is easier to smear vaseline on the front of the diaper than drip it on the penis.

After 5 to 7 days most circumcisions are heeled enough to discontinue use of the vaseline. Typically, the penis is swollen and a yellow scab develops on the head of the penis. Often there is bruising and the base of the penis where lidocaine was injected.

The scab, swelling and bruising should be resolved after two weeks. During the first two weeks after circumcision there is no need to retract the foreskin.
