Post Circumcision Care
The most important part of caring for your circumcised baby is to make sure the wound and penis are kept as clean as possible. Every time you change the nappy, thoroughly wipe away any stool or urine clinging to the penis. If there is stool in the diaper, it is recommended to gently wash the whole area with warm water and an unscented soap that has no harsh ingredients. (If there is just urine, simply change the diaper and wipe gently). Avoid any over rubbing and scrubbing.
- Tip of the penis is red, bruised, or slightly swollen during first few days
- Small amounts of blood in diaper (drops should be quarter-sized or smaller)
- Yellow oozing or scabbing (this means it's healing)
After the 10th to 14th day of healing process, you will no longer require any extra special attention. However, it is important to continue to thoroughly clean all areas of your body with gentle care.
If any of the following occurs:
• Persistant bleeding from wound
• Trouble urinating

What is Circumcision?
Boys are born with a hood of skin, called the foreskin, covering the head of the penis. In circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed, exposing the end of the penis. Circumcision rates have been estimated at around 60% nationally in Australia. Please click below to learn more about baby circumcision at our clinic.
