Hygiene is Essential post Hypospadias repair or Circumcision Surgery

Hypospadias Repair or Circumcision care for infants

Any surgical intervention to an Infant boys penis, be it Circumcision, Epispadias repair or a Hypospadias repair, requires post surgery infection control.These procedures also leave some particularly sensitive tissues open to diaper contact, causing discomfort and pain to the boys penis.

Any infection to the penis can cause swelling, inflammatory reactions and the infant distress.This in turn delays the recovery period. In some cases this leaves the newborn’s penis open to further complications requiring further medical intervention.

The BoBBi Baby Shield was developed with the assistance of leading Urology and Paediatric specialists to address these areas of concern.

  • Bobbi Baby Shield forms a barrier to create distance between the genitals and the diaper helping alleviate the pain and irritation caused by diaper contact with the healing penis.
  • BoBBi Baby Shield,as a result of its anatomical shape, which includes covering the scrotum, prevents the entry of faecal matter onto the genital area.
