Q.

FORESKIN

Dear Paediatrician

Please advise me on my 4 year old's foreskin. He was not curcumcised. I dont really know how it must look and what I must do. Please advise.

The best is to leave the foreskin alone. The foreskin usually becomes retractable from 4-5 years of age, but please do not try to force it back or try to clean underneath.
