You really need to help ve it time. Swelling and sensitivity are common snd scabs denote healing.

Thank you

I didn’t put underwear on until week 6. Scabs and stitches all fell out at week 5. It’s a process. Hang in there. It gets better

Yes, keep the scab moist. It will heal faster. I used A&E ointment and wrapped with gauze. One day I took the gauze off and the scabs all fell off and skin was healed underneath

We all heal in different ways and at different rates. For me it was wearing tight shorts when going out, this limited movement, movement equalled pain ! As a dressing I used melonin patches with vaseline, shiny side to wound so no sticking.Day three short salt baths, then baby soap, this helped to gently clean area, pat dry.

Moving on I then took showers, running the water flow onto penis, little bit a at a time, slowly increasing pressure, this helped me become accustomed to touch.

Finally I moved onto cocoa butter, smeared on the head to stop drying out. Now all good, well, apart from the missing foreskin

😀 Good luck

Thanks for the advice been to have it checked its healing as it should be been given various creams for abit of Swillington the head etc ... Still can't wear clothes due to the sensitivity but they say I have 2 week and the scab and sensitivity goes away 🙂 Thanks all

U gotta wear soft material boxers until the sensitivity problem gets better. Go to a clothes store and try different boxers, not too tights, and choose the confortable ones for your glans while your body fix the sensitivity problem by itself. After stitches fall out, you should massage sore areas for the pain to go away, not before. When you gently massage the penis it would be better to lay down, put a pillow behind your hip and lift both legs to the wall (could be 60 grades angle), all this for the swelling to go away (using gravity to fix the issue :) , if you do this everyday u gonna see the difference little by little. Try to keep the penis dry, you could put a loose gauze around the penis, not too tight. I got circumcised almost 4 weeks ago, and the whole penis is almost healed like nothing happened, even i jacked off 4 times almost 3 weeks after the surgery, hehe it wasn’t a good idea cuz it interrupted the healing a little bit. After circumcision i noticed I lost 2cms length of erection, but girth is almost 1cm bigger, thats because penis was still swollen and for that reason penis skin can’t stretch properly, thats why i was 2cms shorter of lenght. Good luck

my boxers are almost similar to these, it doesn’t have a sewing line in the middle: carrefour.es/pack-dos-boxer...

Don't worry too much. After a few months or years you won't be able to feel much of anything, so hang in there.

I started wearing briefs on my 10th day .first day was little awful because I wasn't used to wear brief. But next day it's normal ,walking, running doing my stuff my own . And also u mentioned it sore ,I suggest you drink turmeric milk everyday it heals internally.

It's just very very sensitive but I've been naked/shorts with hand down there for like 3 week straight it just won't work and they don't sell the turmeric milk round here atleast I don't think they do .Thanks for the advice
