Question re imcomplete circumcision

My son was given a ''balaclava'' instead of a proper circumcision. We did as the doc told us, and applied Advantan for 2 weeks, as some adhesions did form between the glans and the remaining foreskin. It dissolved and we stopped the Advantan. It is now almost a year later and the glans is once again attached to the foreskin, and the groove (corona sulcus?) is not visible anymore. Do we need to start the Advantan again, or what should we do?

Thank you.

This is common following a circumcison. There does not appear to be any real need for concern. If you are concerned about the appearance and /or your son has any difficulty in passing urine it would be advisable to see the doctor who did the operation.
