Why is my sons penis a bit erect after undergoing a Circumcision ?

My 12 yr old son was just circumcised yesterday due to phimosis and a buried penis. I am not sure how ouch soreness is normal on the tip of his penis, by the new exposed glands. It seems very red and the penis seems a bit erect. When should I be concerned. He is taking vicodin every 5 hrs.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The under lying skin is always very red and due to the exposure it is getting slightly irritated causing it to be slightly erect. The newly exposed area is hypersensitive. Better not to touch it. Continue the antibiotics.
