  • I dont know anyone who has had it done, but I do know the mouth is one of the fastest places on the body to heal, and I wouldnt put anything on it unless the Dr specifically told you to. As long as you follow Dr's instructions it shouldnt get infected.

  • Do nothing! It is the fastest healing spot on the body. My son had his done on day 2! :) It is probably healed already! :)

  • my dd got hers cut at 2 weeks, don't put anything on it, like the PP do nothing! it heals quick, it'll turn white like a wet scab, but its just healing! had no prob. with infection. we fed her like 10 minutes after just like the dr. said. and she was fine!
