Circumcision is a widely used practice across the world, and many parents decide that they want to arrange this for their child one of three main reasons:
- Religious beliefs – to adhere to your religion’s requirements.

- Social reasons – so that your son is not left feeling different from their peers as they grow up.

How Long Does It Take for A Circumcision To Heal?
A circumcision typically takes around 7 – 10 days to heal fully, but it should not cause your baby any discomfort while it heals. Rabbi Mike will advise you on the steps you need to take to ensure the area is able to heal well and these include:
- Putting an antibiotic ointment onto gauze and placing it on the circumcision site for 2-3 days.
- Not bathing your child for 48 hours after the procedure.
- Gently bathing the area from day three onwards.
- Not allowing your son to touch the affected area while it heals.
What Should I Look Out for During The Healing Process?
During the healing process, you should notice some powdery residue and redness that lasts the first couple of days. After this, the redness will subside, and a light colored scab will form (this will later fall off and should not be picked at).
If any of the following symptoms occur, then you should seek medical advice immediately:
- Continued bleeding.
- Redness that does not pass after a couple of days.
- Any signs of infection (oozing or blisters occurring)
- A temperature.
- Not passing any urine within 12 hours of the circumcision taking place.
