My son is 4 and 1/2 months old and when he went to the doctor at his 4 month check up and shots she check his circumcision (which has completely healed within 10 days of birth). She said that the skin was growing back together and she needed to pull it apart before it got any worse and he would have to see a specialist. I freaked! But let her go ahead and do it. It was painful for him and it only took a second. She said I have to clean it once a day and put vaseline on the area so it doesn't grow back together. Has anybody had this happen? I wonder why if it was possible for the skin to grow together why didn't she tell me to check it and move that skin around to prevent it!! Now my poor baby had to have it done and I'm afraid his thingy will look bad when he is older! Plus, I ask how long should I do that and she said everyday! I think I might change doctors.Answer Question

Excuse you. But I do clean my son when I change his diapers and it still happened. His circumcision healed very well. Nobody told us that it was a possibility it could grown back together after it was completely healed. This is my first child and I read all the paper work that was given to me and listened to all of the doctor's instructions. I just don't want my son to go through any unnecessary pain. But when I don't get solid answers to my questions from the doctor or if she just shrugs her shoulders then I have every right to change doctors. You could be a little bit nicer or not answer at all if you're going to be that way.
I thought this was a place where you could ask questions and get a friendly response.
