Using soap?

Using soap?

Hi guys,

So it’s been 3 long weeks since my circumcision now and things have improved slowly, wanted to thank everyone who took the time to comment on my previous posts and reassure me that it would get better, it’s most appreciated!

I’m still having a bit of discharge and tiny dots of blood when I wake up, so don’t know where that’s coming from but the frenulum area doesn’t seem to be healing. The glans have calmed down drastically so I can wear clothes again (ohhh how I’ve missed clothing) but it’s still sticking to things and that’s painful, little knocks are not nice either.

Now that the glans have stopped drying out and the skin isn’t flaking off visibly, has anyone tried using a soap bar? My thoughts are that soap dries the skin and hopefully that will speed up the process of keratinisation.. Any thoughts?

I mean it looks pretty good to me man. Looks like your healing fast. I must be one of the unlucky ones because my swelling has gone down so slowly and my frenulum area is still very swollen and I’m 18 days post op. As for the discharge and blood I don’t think that’s normal but that’s just my opinion, I think mine stopped at around day 10

I was told to use soap and water after my third day and wash twice a day. I had no problems with blood or discharge.

Please use warm water and salt to clean your wound 4 times a day. Soak it for 10 to 15 minutes to avoid infection and it will heal quick. Salt and water is magic

There is a yellowish, translucent triangular area where your frenulum is supposed to be. That does not look right to me.

I urge you to see your doctor.
