Is an Uncircumcised Penis Harder to Clean?
Not when your child is a baby. "If your baby is uncircumcised, leave the foreskin alone -- don't try to pull it back since this can cause pain," says Dr. Shu. "Instead, simply wash the penis -- including the foreskin -- with soap and water when he's in the bathtub." Once your son reaches 4 or 5 years old, the foreskin will start to naturally pull back on its own. At this point, it does take a bit more effort to clean. You'll need to teach him how to gently roll the foreskin down, wash the head of the penis, then roll the skin back.
