There are many signs that a baby’s circumcision has healed. Redness and swelling around the
incision area may last from hours up to days after surgery. The incision site should be dry within
a week. The wound could have a foul odor if the ring used to circumcise the baby does not fall
off within two weeks. A foul-smelling, cloudy or foul-smelling drainage could also be present.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies should be sedated for
circumcision. This procedure is performed in the hospital and does not require general
anesthesia. To prevent pain during the procedure, a local anesthetic is applied before the
procedure. A pacifier can be given to the baby, which can be dipped in sugar water. To minimize
pain, a baby may be swaddled.
Most circumcision healing is associated to mild to moderate pain and swelling. The procedure
itself can be tolerated and the boy may return to school after one week. During the first week
after surgery, he should avoid driving and should avoid erections for a week or two. In some
cases, pain medication is prescribed to relieve any discomfort. The child should not go back to
work until he is fully healed.
HIV transmission is more likely to occur during circumcision healing. About 30% of circumcised
men should not engage in sexual intercourse during the healing period. A low HIV prevalence
would mean that there would be fewer new HIV infections in women than circumcision would.

A healthcare provider will apply an anesthetic to the area to prevent the penis clotting. A plastic
clamp may be attached around the penis to make it easier to remove the skin. Once the
exposed part is removed, the healthcare provider will apply petroleum jelly to the affected areas.

Baby may experience some swelling and redness after circumcision. However, this should go
away after a week or so. To promote healing and recovery, it is important to bathe your baby
every day. In general, circumcision healing does not require hospitalization and is not difficult. It
is not painful and can be done in two to three weeks. Depending on the severity of the
circumcision and the quality of the skin, a baby can return to normal activities within a week or
It can be done at any age. But it is most common to occur within the first 30 days of a child’s first
month. If the baby is awake during the procedure it will be painless. Anesthesia should be
administered to older babies and adults before the surgery. They may become more aware of
their sexual organs, and may be afraid of it. Also, circumcision healing takes less time in a baby.
The procedure is generally safe but can cause bleeding. Bleeding is normal, but should be
stopped by a pressure dressing. An incorrectly placed clamp can cause injuries to the urethra
and glans. Hypospadias is a rare condition after circumcision. A baby’s penis might be more
sensitive to touch than an adult’s, so it may have a reduced sense of touch. This may lead to a
decrease in sexual pleasure later in your life.
Some children can develop skin irritations or adhesions after a circumcision. A pediatric urologist
is able to perform a revision procedure in these cases. The surgery is minimally invasive and
usually requires local pain medication. Adhesions are more likely in children younger than 10
years. If the child is older, a revision may be necessary to remove any extra skin and correct the
circumcision. This type of surgery is also often performed for health reasons.
