Swelling after circumcision

Swelling after circumcision

Its been one month since my circumcision. The stitches are gone but the swelling is still there. I've posted the photo too. Please let me know how to reduce the swelling and if anything is serious.

Is that picture from today? Did you put an ointment on the incision section or what is that?

Well in that case the swelling is perfectly normal and nothing to be worried about.

I was wondering the same.. what’s that liquid? Have you gone for a follow up?

Those stains are of ointment. There is no discharge from the incision. The wound has healed completely but the swelling is same.

Hello sidd8, your body has gone through a trauma in a very vascular area. You had a lot of blood flow through the area as well as lymphatic system damage. It is very normal to have swelling this late. To help the swelling go down you need to be laying on youjr back so that your genitals are above heart level. You need to be icing it and not standing for long. Also, take ibuprofen as it helps with the swelling

Is the swelling painful

No! There is no pain.

Do you wear your penis upwards in your underwear? Because this makes the swelling going down.
