  • Yes, when it healed it healed to the skin on the head. While it is painful for him the first time, they do need to fix it. Then you need to continue to make sure it doesn't heal to the head again. DS 3 had this happen to him.

  • Wait, I'm confused... You say he was not circumcised, and his foreskin made it look like he was not circumcised... That makes no sense whatsoever. If you're saying he's NOT circumcised and the foreskin is NOT retracting, it's okay. Forced retraction of the foreskin at that age unless absolutely necessary (aka for infection or something of that nature) is just painful for the little one.

  • They didn't circumcise him RIGHT, anon:01. She simply started to state it one way then changed, but didn't delete her mistake.

  • "Wait, I'm confused... You say he was not circumcised, and his foreskin made it look like he was not circumcised... That makes no sense whatsoever."

    Due to common issue with circ's being done too tight and casuing problems later in life, many docs are now doing "looser" circ's where there is some skin left, I assume that's what the case is with the op's son.

    They should have told you to be sure to move the skin back at every diaper change and even to occasionally put some Vaseline on there to be sure that didn't happen. I'm sorry your doc didn't tell you that and your little guy will have to endure some discomfort at this point.

  • You need to push the skin back almost every change. And also in the tub.

  • My son has a slight adhesion and he is 9 months now. I am going to take him to a pediatric urologist for a second opinion because one of the peds said " its just cosmetic". I don't know about this and want somebody more used to seeing it to give me there opinion. he might have to get a procedure done to separate it now b/c it doesn't get separated by pulling it back ( my son now.)
    It does look like there is some extra skin from my sons circ.
