Risks of Circumcision:

Bleeding and infection at the site of circumcision are the most common complications however, the risk is low.

 

Circumcision procedure:

It is advice to do the procedure in babies in their first 10 days after birth. Done by freeing the foreskin from the head of the penis and excess foreskin is clipped off. Ointment will be applied after.

 

After Circumcision:

Proper hygiene is important. Washing it gently with warm water daily and applying antibiotic cream after. It takes 5-7 days for the healing process. Minimal bleeding or swelling at first is normal.

 

When to consult a doctor:

Seek a medical attention if there is any severe or continuous bleeding and pain, the child does not pass urine in the first 12 hours after the procedure, or any foul smelling secretions. Almost all side effects are easily treated.
