How do I care for my baby´s uncircumcised penis?

Uncircumcised Penis Care

No special care is needed for an uncircumcised penis. Simply wash the outside with soap and water - the same as you would the rest of the body. It is not only unnecessary to forcibly retract the foreskin, or clean under it with antiseptics, cotton swabs, etc., but it can be harmful. By the age of puberty most foreskins will be retractable, and at that time your son can learn to retract his and clean under it himself.
