Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX
1. Keep the area clean and healthy.
2. Dressing as advised by your doctor.
3. Pain killers and antibiotics as advised by your doctor.
4. Diet XXXXXX in XXXXXX leafy vegetables.
5. You can also apply antibiotic cream if the area is open.

Add B complex and vitamin c to your medicines.
You will be ok in a day or two, nothing much to worry.

Welcome back.
Take daily showers if there is no dressing and that's the best way to keep it clean.
After showers, kindly apply the antiseptic/antibiotic ointment.
Get a few gauze pieces from a nearby hosp or pharmacy to keep the suture line and the penile head covered - to prevent the underwear from directly irritating the part.
Since the penile head is XXXXXX is nerves, you have the funny feel when the dress touched that part.
Use underwear as usual.
Do this procedure for about three weeks and you should be alright.

Welcome back.
If there is pus, pls report back to your surgeon.
He has the responsibility to examine your wound and do the needful.
You may need regular dressing if the wound is infected.
Further suggestions are based on the result of the check up.
Take care.
