First off, I don't agree with circumcisions anymore, but it's too late for us with this baby! I have been concerned about his circumcision on and off for six months.
My son is 10 months and keeps pulling on his penis. It is red on one part of the circumcision and looks almost like the skin is so tight that is is pulled away from the penis in that small spot. I'm not good at pulling down his skin to inspect his circumcision regularly, so it may have been that way for awhile. It has been red in that spot before and last spring his doctor said to use Desitin on it. However, the Desitin was irritating to his penis. Needless to say we don't see this doc anymore.
I don't think it is life threatening, but I am concerned and wondering if anyone out there has any experience with this scenario. Should I take him to be seen or not? Should I be putting something on it?
