A Jelonet dressing is placed after all circumcisions. The occasional bleeding in this dressing does cause the scab to attach to the jel dressing. Lengthy soaking of the bandage in a bath of water for 30-60 minutes will allow easier removal. Mums tend to be over cautious, there is nothing you can disturb in the wound with a careful quick tug at the small area attached.
