my son was circumcised today & the doctor wrapped his winkie in a thin yellow gauze strip coated in vaseline (eggroll style). he said to leave the gauze on for 3 days, don't touch it, don't remove it, don't replace it, just leave it alone. a few hours after we got home, i changed his wet diaper & the gauze strip came off. the doc said it would be very painful if it came off & just re-roll it around his penis if it comes off. i'm concerne that it won't stay on & will continue to come off & be painful to my son. would a regular gauze pad & vaseline be just as effective if i run out of the little yellow strips. i was only given 2 extra & i don't think they sell those at stores.

I was never told to leave the gauze on. Just to put neosporin on it.
