If anyone can please help us it would be greatly appreciated. My son was circumcised shortly after birth by a local pediatrician with a good rep. But he barely took anything off and now we are having all kinds of problems! The penis head is completely covered up and we were told that we need to retract it and put gel on the head. But we're having constant problems with the skin adhesions to the penis head. One doctor said to pull them apart another said to just leave it alone. I'm scared to death I'm going to ruin my son for life but I can't get a straight answer out of these doctors. AND my 10 yr. old nephew just had to get surgery to fix a "skin bridge" that started out like this! I don't even kniow what a "skin bridge" is. Please help!!!View Thread
