So my little brother is 6 years old, he was circumcised soon after birth. At one point the pediatrician had yanked down the healing skin during a check up, causing him to shriek loudly and the skin to bleed. He is currently undergoing testing for autism as well- unsure if this is relevant. But recently my mom mentioned to me that after he urinates he will sit on the bathroom floor and tug at himself as though he has no feeling, nearly tearing his skin and leaving his scrotum very red and agitated. I know that the surgery damages nerve endings, but do you think it could do it to the extent of the child feeling no pain such as this? This isn't something new either, he has tugged at himself ever since he was a toddler, but my mother and I always assumed it was due to having a dangly part. Most of the info I come across online has been regarding adult men after the procedure. Thanks

I hope your brother has recovered from the adhesion and there will be no reason for the doctor to interfere further. I'm glad to know you won't be circumcising your own son when he arrives. You will be amazed at the amount of tugging that little boys can do!
