Should Boys be Routinely Circumcised
FULL CIRCUMCISION INFANT CONDITIONS
and HOW TO CHECK CIRCUMCISED BOYS
Some who have had this infant operation feel it is necessary to
check circumcised boys as well as uncircumcised, however, none of the
pro or anti circumcision sites cover the subject.
I feel I still do not know enough about the problems of a circumcised
penis to be able to advise people on this...... and I would appreciate
adults who have had problems as infant or adult, to inform me of the
I hope the following will be helpful
Perhaps the first consideration is the pain of an often not anaesthetised
operation, (which obviously a baby wont be consciously remembered,
but babies are sensitive and they certainly experience this, and experiences
form impressions and impressions develop into attitudes), so if you
are determined that your baby has a routine infant circumcision, maybe
you would like to ensure that the operator uses a local anaesthetic.
This operation is often performed carelessly, frequently by student
doctors with no post operative check up - skin bridges are a common
The after effects of a burning soreness from a hyper sensitive
glans for a few weeks are I believe ineviatable. Adult men commonly
report a burning sensation from the newly exposed glans for the first
month or two afterwards. Even with an expert operator or refined technique,
one cannot avoid the resultant hyper sensitivity of the glans from
a full circumcision when it has never previously been exposed..
In this context, childhood circumcision is frequently reported to
leave the glans desensitivised - and in such cases we may imagine the
glans and the nervous system has over compensated, resulting in a a
numbness of the glans. ... If this is true, it would indicate that
after being circumcised the infant suffers considerable pain from his
burning naked and wounded penis.
One could use an anaesthetic cream to protect the glans. An alternative
(experiment) may be using oil of cloves, possibly diluted with olive
oil - anything to protect
Post Circumcision Conditions
i) frequently skin bridges which can restrict or be painful on the erect penis
ii) occasionally: no foreskin is available for the tension of a frenulum
breve to displace - and this causes tension and erection deviation an e.mail letter

iv) A newly exposed glans could occasionally develop allergies.
How to Check
Though skin bridges and allergies could be diagnosed in the flaccid
state, ii) and iii) would require the parent to use their eyes during
their child`s bathtime erections.
