Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.

Since it is three days, you may remove the dressing and apply only ointment.
Nothing else is needed, unless there is bleeding in the wound, pus discharge, swollen penis, difficulty in passing urine.

However he needs daily showers and keep the area clean and dry.
