In the advent of mass voluntary medical male circumcision VMMC for the partial prevention of HIV, previously rare adverse events associated with adult male circumcision are likely to be encountered with higher frequency. In this report, we present two cases that were identified in the context of a VMMC programme over a 3-year period during which approximatelyadult circumcisions were performed. Case 1: A year-old male who had VMMC performed using the dorsal slit technique developed pain and blisters on the scrotal skin on the sixth postoperative day.
This often causes a sore throat, which can be quite painful. This typically goes away in the first day. If this bothers your child, we suggest cold drinks and soft foods.
Circumcision is a common surgical procedure used to remove the foreskin of the penis. The tip of the penis, called the glans, is typically left exposed. The foreskin is reattached to the penis shaft. As with any surgery, circumcision can leave a scar.
Quiet, normal activity is recommended. Avoid rough or active sports for the two weeks following surgery, as they can cause oozing from the incision. It's best to avoid full-body bathing until the second day after surgery, but sponge baths are fine.
JOHN R. Adult circumcision can be performed under local or regional anesthesia. Medical indications for this procedure include phimosis, paraphimosis, recurrent balanitis and posthitis inflammation of the prepuce.
Male circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin. The foreskin is the fold of skin covering the end of the penis, which can be gently pulled back. During the 19th century, many medical practitioners believed that being circumcised was more hygienic than not being circumcised.
Though it is a routine procedure, a circumcision requires proper care and cleaning to heal properly. When caring for a newly circumcised newborn, clean the area after every diaper change, keep the area dry, wash the wound gently, let it air dry, dress the wound with gauze and vaseline, and do frequent diaper changes. When caring for an adult circumcision, soak the wound 48 hours after the procedure to remove the initial bandage, change the dressing every day or two, shower carefully, and keep it dry.
