  • My son got the ring, just keep it clean and I put the Neosporeon (sp) with the pain reliver on it.... make sure you keep something on it so it doesn't stick to the diaper

  • my son didn't get the ring... they told me to put vaseline on it after every diaper change and put a clean piece of gauze over it until the bandage they put on there fell off

  • Just stick a lot of vaseline in the diaper so it heals and doesn't get stuck.

  • If you haven't done it, you don't have to. It isn't necessary. Plus an unaltered penis needs no special care.

  • Put some A&D ointment on it so that it doesn't stick to the diaper.

  • My sons both had a plastibell, so there was no care needed. Just rinse it off if poop gets on it. The ring falls off around day 5.

  • We were instructed to put lots of Vaseline on it to keep it from sticking to the diaper in the beginning, for about a week, I think. Other than that, nothing. Once it heals make sure it stays clean to prevent adhesion's. Pretty easy really.
