Penis Care

I looked to see if this was discussed and couldn't find it, so I apologize in advance if it has.   DS's circumcision is fully healed.  I went to go clean poop from his penis and pulled the skin back a little and noticed a white film.  Is that normal?  Am I supposed to clean it?  I feel so silly, but it wasn't something I asked at the hospital and never asked at the pedi office.  I will call them, but since it's Friday and after hours, I'll have to wait for the on-call doctor to call back, which could be a while.  TIA!

    We had this too. The doctor said clean it with a qtip and then wipe. It will go away after a few days.

    Also you may want to check with your pedi, but mine told me to periodically pull back the skin to keep it from reattching.

    This. His did reattach slightly, so the pedi had to pull it apart again. Now we are pulling it back every diaper change and applying Vaseline until it heals again without reattaching.
