  • no
    all you do is wash it like you would a finger. don't pull on the foreskin. It will loosen as he ages

  • I've never heard that, but I do know that the foresking has to be pulled down and cleaned otherwise they get bacterial growth under the foresking

  • As an adult the foreskin is pulled back to clean...as an infant/child it is not. Never retract the foreskin of a young child, it could cause damage to the penis.

  • The for skin can where to itself and need to be reopened by a doctor! My friends baby had it happen twice. But I'm not sure it was due to lack of cleanliness. But he did get infections as he got older. But never pull back a foreskin yourself!

  • @ Zakysmommy...no...the foreskin is attached to the head of the penis as a child. Sometimes it is not fully retractable until puberty. Pulling it back can cause adhesions and tears. Also doing so can lead to infections...

  • Stupid iPad was spelling for me! The foreskin can seal shut so urin and bacteria are trapped. But I'm not sure it's due to lack of cleanliness.
