Is It Advisable To Pull Back Foreskin Of Penis In Young Age?

Hi, I have three uncircumcised sons. One is 10, one 8, and one 3. Should they all be carefully pulling back their foreskin when they urinate and when they bathe? They are not fully retracted so I don t want to injure them, but shouldn t they be pulling it back gently?

Hi,

Yes you can try pulling back gently during bath. Avoid overstretching. If still the skin doesn’t retract fully better to get them examined by your doctor for need of circumcision.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
