Avoid Infection After Circumcision – Step by Step

Circumcision is a cultural rite of passage in most communities and involves the removal of the foreskin in male children. This minor operation is performed in hospitals though majority of communities especially in Africa perform it the traditional way. A traditional circumciser does the operation on tens or even hundreds of boys. This is where there is the biggest risk of infection as one knife is used on several boys without instituting proper hygienic measures. It is important to observe during and after the operation. I would like to focus more on the post operation recovery.

Though circumcision is regarded a minor operation it should not be taken for granted when you are recovering. You have been stitches on the penis which take time to heal. The organ is usually sensitive at this juncture as the fore skin is delicately exposed. It may easily be infected with a bacterial infection if you do not observe basic hygiene. To prevent infection, ensure that you do not hold it with unclean hands. Hands are the single largest transmitter of germs. It is therefore important to wash your hand with a disinfectant after visiting the toilet or after handling other stuff.

Avoid Infection After Circumcision - Step by Step tips

Since it is usually bandaged, ensure the bandage is clean and dry. If need be, you can replace the bandage on the wound after a few days. You should be care full when removing the bandage to ensure that you do not tamper with the healing wound. Wash the wound with warm water treated with an appropriate disinfectant. Use a clean, soft cloth to wash the wound. Ensure that you clean the wound thoroughly as unclean or poorly cleaned wound may be a fertile place for infection and re-infection. Allow the wound to dry and then apply jelly on it. Allow it to breathe some fresh air for couple of minutes before applying another new, clean bandage. Properly dispose of the old bandage and clean your hand to avoid re-infection. If you are attending to another person, ensure that you are the only one treating the wounds to ensure that infection does not come from outside.

Your finger nails should be short and clean. The bedding should be clean, warm and soft. Untidy bedding may pose a health risk as they will from time to time come into contact with the wound. The bedding should be replaced, washed and aired as required. In order to prevent infection after circumcision, ensure that your clothes are clean. They may be conduits for infection hence the need to keep them clean. Personal hygiene should be encouraged so as to prevent infection.

Sanitary items like towels, soap and washing should not be shared. They should be for personal use otherwise bacteria and other germs may find you’re from a second party. Toilet and bathroom should be dry, disinfected and clean always. The room in which you are recuperating should be clean, airy and fresh to prevent infected air from being closed in. if these measure are implemented, then you shall be able to prevent infection after circumcision.

3. Chest Presses – My favorite chest presses is the bench press and the seated chest press. The bench press is when you lie on your back with your chest facing up. You then hold a barbell in both hands and push upwards until your hands are extended. You then bring the barbell down until it is a few centimeters from your chest and repeat the process. With the seated chest press you simply sit on the chest press machine. You will then push the weight straight, away from your chest until the arms are fully extended, and then pull your arms back to the starting position and repeat.

Losing weight will definitely propel you towards getting rid of your man boobs.
