Circumcision and care for circumcised penis 포경수술과 자지 간호
Instruments used for circumcision
The tip of the boy’s cock is called the glans.
The skin surrounding the glans is called the foreskin.
The surgery to remove the foreskin is called circumcision. Before the boy is born, the mother and father must decide whether to circumcise the boy’s cock.
In the past, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that boys perform circumcision to sanitize their penis, but these days it is not necessary to perform circumcision. However, even now, there are conflicting arguments that “you have to do circumcision” and “no need to do it”, and “if you have circumcision, it is good and bad”. The pros and cons are divided in the medical world.
This controversy will never end.
After consulting with a gynecologist or pediatrician, mothers and fathers should decide to perform circumcision. Circumcision is performed by a pediatrician or an obstetrician according to the hospital care regulations or the doctor’s philosophy of care. Even if you haven’t had circumcision, you don’t need to deliberately remove the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis (glans), and there is no need for your parents to deliberately wipe the tip of the penis covered with the foreskin (glans).
Until the affected area caused by circumcision is healed, you need to take good care of your cock. Watch for bleeding from the circumcised penis.
Clean the affected area that has undergone circumcision, and apply Petroleum jelly to the affected area for 2 to 3 days after the surgery to prevent stool from getting on the area. Instead of applying petroleum jelly, petroleum jelly gauze may be used to wrap the circumcised area for several days.
Depending on the circumcision method, the method of nursing the affected area for circumcision is slightly different. Before you leave the hospital and go home, you should ask your doctor about how to care for circumcised affected areas. Alcohol should not be applied to the affected area of circumcision.
Parents sometimes ask if the foreskin that covered the glans at the tip of the penis of a boy who has not undergone circumcision should be deliberately removed and washed.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recently announced that there is no need to deliberately remove the foreskin of a boy’s cock who can urinate normally and that there is no need for circumcision.
Until puberty, the foreskin of the cock naturally breaks normally. There is no need to deliberately open the foreskin of the cock, and there is no need for circumcision, and it is natural and normal to leave it as it is.
