Adelanto newborn circumcision expert, Dr. Ahmadinia of OBGYN High Desert, wants to ease your concerns about the procedure he is about to do to your baby boy. It’s commonplace in society to have a child circumcised for medical, religious, cultural, and societal purposes. Removing excess skin at the tip of the penis allows the boy to have better hygiene throughout his life. Circumcision may prevent cancer in the penis, the risk of acquiring HIV, other STDs such as genital herpes, and the growth of bacteria and viruses.

Caring for Your Baby After Adelanto Newborn Circumcision

After the baby is circumcised, you’ll need to take special care of the surgical area to make sure it is clean at all time. Your child may experience swelling and even vocalize pain. You may be able to give the baby acetaminophen if cleared by his pediatrician to help reduce symptoms.

Wash the area with mild, unscented soap and water during baths and before changing them into a fresh diaper. Bandage the penis after every diaper change. A plastic ring may be placed on the penis instead, so watch for it to fall off indicating that the healing process is almost complete.

It typically takes seven to ten days for the surgical area to heal entirely. If you notice that it doesn’t look like it is healing properly, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ahmadinia right away. He’ll be able to take immediate action to prevent infection from occurring.
