Boy question

I'm sorry if this has been posted before. I'm still new!

My baby is 9 months. (please don't flame me!) We had him circumsized at birth. I don't like the way it looks. It seems like "the tip" is stuck to what was circumsized. It's dark purple and there seems to be a large amount of access skin. "The tip" does not move. Is that normal? I have an older boy who was done, but his didn't look like this? My other mom was changing him and noticed this. The doctor has looked at him several times and never said anything.

Re: Boy question

Take him in and ask about it. Sometimes if the parents don't ask, the doctors don't tell.

Re: Boy question

I would ask the doctor to look at it. Both of my boys have been circumsized and I have not had that problem with either of them. Carter's did take a lot longer to heal, but he's almost 8 months old and it looks fine now.

Re: Boy question

I don't know how long it's been like this. I did try pulling the skin back. It's attached to the head of the penis on the side and most of the underneath. It's hard to see the purple area because of all the excess skin . It's almost like he didn't have one. My husband said it's not right for sure. He isn't in any pain from it.

Re: Boy question

Sorry mama I think if it's attached you probably need to get the Dr. involved. I might try putting vasiline on it for a week or so to see if that might soften the skin enough that it could be pushed back, but that might hurt him.

Re: Boy question

My son has the exact same thing. I have been to the pediatrician over this three times now. He had skin on each side attatched like that. One of them they broke, but now that he is older they don't want to break the other side. They are afraid if they do now it will bleed out. So if it hasn't broke by his 6 mos appt. they are sending him to a pediatric urologist to have it cut. I will never circ another boy.
