I don't really know much about this as I have a girly, but are you saying the doc retracted his foreskin? I thought that they weren't supossed to do that?? I know some docs are old school and do that, but it's highly recommended not to...
but I don't really know much about the adhesion issue either! Hopefully a more experienced mama will speak up!
I am gathering he is circed and it was a loose circ. which has allowed the penis to try to "heal" itself by covering the head again. I have read that the doc should NOT try to pull it back again, as it will often cause pain. I think you can put Vaseline on it and that will lubricate the area and allow it to not reattach. There was a thread online about it at babycenter.com and how some kids were not having surgery and some were. It is probably something you should discuss with a urologist, since they see things like this more often than peds. I'll see if I can find the link to that thread.
We are using the Vaseline and he seems to be ok . . . he doesn't appear to be in any pain. I think we are going to get a referral from a urologist to be on the safe side. I don't want him to run into problems later on. Better to be safe than sorry!
I have experience with this! My older son who (6yrs) did not have a problem with this..however Karson did! When we went in for his 6mon check his Dr. was checking him out and said that his foreskin was sticking and trying to heal together (if that makes sence). His said its very common with babies... His recom was to put hydrocortisone on it with each diaper change, that will help with inflammation and with also lubricate it. Within a few days it looked completely normal again and isnt sticking. I just make sure its very clean and continue to put hydrocortisone on it. Im sure it will help your little guy..I know its painful the first few times you do it but trust me its worth it! Hope this helps
Dillon is circumcised but his foreskin covers the head some times. It doesn't stick to it. His ped said, it was the fat from right about pushing the skin down. As he grows the fat with go away and the skin would not push down. He pressed on the area to show me how the skin retracted. Anyway, he told me to just push up the foreskin at each diaper change.
