Circumcision Care Instructions

Gently clean the area with water every day and whenever the diaper area becomes soiled. Some swelling of the penis is normal after a circumcision. A clear crust will probably form over the area. It normally takes 7 to 10 days for the penis to heal after a circumcision.

After the circumcision, you may notice a small amount of blood on the baby's diaper. If the bloodstain is larger than the size of a quarter, call your doctor right away. If there is a bandage on the penis, the bandage should be changed each time you change your son's diaper. This will help prevent infection. Signs of infection also signal the need to call your doctor. These signs include a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, redness, swelling and/or a yellowish discharge.

When to call your doctor

  • If the wound does not stop bleeding.
  • If your son does not have a wet diaper within 6 to 8 hours after the circumcision.
  • If the redness and swelling around the tip of the penis does not go away or gets worse.
  • If there is a yellow discharge or coating around the tip of the penis after 7 days.
