Ok my so is 2. He was circumcised as a newborn. All was fine till maybe 6 months ago. I had always heard not to push the skin back so I didn't. But around 6 months ago I did because it was dirty. When I did this I knoticed that where it wss circumcised on one side had grown to one side of the head. It didn't effect anything and I asked my husband about it and he didn't seem worried so I just left it. Well today I was changing his diaper and I pulled it back to check and I pulled the growth part off of the head where it attached. He said it hurt so I put some ointment on it. It was an accident and I feel terrible. Has anyone ever had this happen to there son? Thrre was no blood and hes acting fine :(

Not retracting refers to intact boys. What your son has are adhesions (where the foreskin was forcibly separated from the glans prior to the circumcision but has reattached) and will need to be treated by a physician.

 The rule you're referring to is for uncircumcised boys.

The skin they tell you not to push back is the foreskin, which is what is removed during a circumcision.

Ok he had skin left after the circumcision. I looked it up and he had a loose circumcision they leave them loose so that the skin doesnt get too tight and hurt them when they are erect

You will have to keep pulling it back so it doesn't create an adhesion.
