How To Get Circumcised Wound Healed?

default
Posted on Tue, 4 Jun 2024
Question: I have been circumcised and the wound after surgery and the wound has not healed 4 months after the surgery. I wonder if I can do something about this, maybe some ointment or something? Also wondering how long you think it will take for the wound to heal?

It doesn't work to add a picture. `request entity too large`

Brief Answer:
Proper dressing with antibiotic will help to resolve the issue

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted you seem to have undergone surgery of Circumcision four months ago but the wound has not healed up completely.

Taking antibiotic like Doxicycline twice daily with anti inflammatory dug like Diclofenac and washing genitalia twice daily with warm water and applying topical antibiotic ointment like Neosporin will help to resolve the issue. It should have healed by now

You can email the photo to customer care and they will forward it to me

Thanks and Regards
