Buy yourself a jockstrap (sports support) from any sports store.

Keeps things from moving around & rubbing.

Yes, the gauze won't adhere to wound and sutures that much, when using vaseline. You can put petroleum jelly on to wound area or to gauze. Remember: wash your hands first.

I was thinking of this, but this could cause more problems because having anything touching the glans would be painful. Boxer shorts with coconut oil and baggy clothing is the key. I have issues tucking my clothes in and wearing belts.

Put a gaze around the stitches.

I would wait with the vaseline until the wound is healed.

You can also put a gauze around the sensitive glans.

Vaseline is good loose boxers

I am on day 10 and when I go out, I still put on gauze - mainly to prevent the discomfort from the stitches, but otherwise, I let me penis air out and get used to having no foreskin when at home! As Cirkdone says, positioning the penis upright does also help greatly to reduce swelling and keep it comfortable!

i did not understand the concept of upright of penis does it means that the angle between penis and our naval should be 90degree or the head of the penis should be in the direction of our head

It means face the tip of your penis towards your chest! So just bring it up as though you would have an erection if I can put it that way, and angle it towards your chest with the top of the glans resting on your pubic area and the bottom where your frenulum is facing the sky

but then if i walk or move then the penis will automatically go down as gravity will act upon it,hm?

Try mainly doing this when you lie down, naturally and then when you have to walk around and do things, wrap the stitches and glans in gauze if need be and wear tight fitting underwear to keep it in place, angling it downwards as usual, this will significantly help

The best thing I've found to do is drink NOTHING before sleeping and empty your bladder before sleeping. Also find the most comfortable position that when lying down feels like it won't induce any erections. For me this has been lying on my back as lying on my side causes erections. Also, try angling your penis upwards when you sleep. I still wrap mine in gauze when I sleep which helps to not cause any rubbing which could lead to an erection

It all depends on how you're feeling - it's case-to-case! I drove after day 8 with some discomfort! I'll be driving again today on day 10 and I believe it will be better! Just going to keep things bandaged

I know it can be scary and feels like it will never improve but remember that MILLIONS of men go through this and they make it out just fine!

I'm sorry it's been a painful experience for you - I have been very fortunate and haven't had it that bad, I havent had to take a single painkiller! You can view my profile to see my post and story! That's the best thing to do - just distract yourself until its flaccid! Follow my tips on avoiding erections and you should see an improvement!

There shouldn't be a bad smell... I'd say put on some antibacterial ointment and contact your doctor to have him have a look in case of infection

Try using extra virgin unrefined organic coconut oil. It has helped me greatly.

If you need help, I can show you how liberal it when going out. I also have Lichen Sclerosus so the tip of my glans is hyper sensitive and so I have adapted a way of wrapping it to make it possible to walk when out

Everyone is different about the boxers etc ,loose was good for me

At this moment the gauze is a shield for your wound if there is still some discharge. You don't have to use any gauze (over the glans) if you'll bear the friction and touch already.

Hi there! What I found really helped is just keeping the head bandaged until it slowly got a bit more used to not having the foreskin. After that, I slowly introduced it to rubbing against my pants. Using some kind of moisturizer such as Vaseline or Aquaphor does help too! You'll get used to it sooner than you know!
