Q.

Foreskin - 5 year old

My 5 year old son''s foreskin is still closed. He can wee normally and doesn''t have any problems with it other that when he tries to pee with an erection it hurts. Is this any cause for concern?

As long as your son can wee normally there is no need for concern.

My son also used to complain of that at that age. I think that''s part of it separating. He''s seven now and has no pain when he has an erection and his foreskin has completely separated. I think its pretty normal.
