Q.

Cause for concern?

My four month old son in uncircumcised. I notice that the tip of his penis often has what appears to be little cuts or slits and sometimes some sort of white discharge which is very little, I am more concerned about the tiny cuts at the tip of the foreskin. Is this normal or should I ask a doctor to take a look?

This is normal. Just wash your baby son's penis gently with a soft washcloth.
