How do I remove the gauze if it’s sticking?

  • Apply Vaseline liberally over the bandage.
  • Close the diaper and allow the bandage to soften for 10-15 minutes.
  • Soak your baby in a warm bath for 15 minutes.
  • Gently peel away the bandage.
  • If the bandage won’t come off, pull harder and be prepared for the penis to bleed a few drops. You may need to hold pressure on the area for a few minutes to stop the bleeding (see above: “To stop active bleeding”).
  • If you find it too difficult or if you’re uncomfortable pulling harder, call our office to book an appointment for our staff to remove the bandage.
