Prevention of Circumcision Complications
You can prevent some of the complications of circumcision by very carefully keeping the area clean during diaper changes.
Few infants have complications from circumcision (as few as 2%). Most complications are easy to treat. To reduce the risk of complications, be sure the doctor performing the circumcision is experienced.
