Q.

Foreskin

My son is almost 3 years old. I did not have him circumsized. My mother has now told me that I need to start pulling his skin back, and get it to come loose. Otherwise it will not pull open when he is older and they will have to cut it off.

I tried to do this last night when he was in the bath, but the foreskin does not want to pull back and when I try, he says that it is sore.

Should I do a little bit every day, until it does eventually come loose, what should I do, I did not know about this until my mom told me about it afew days ago.

I am now terribly worried that he is going to have to have the op.

Please help me asap.

Please do not do this as it is not necessary and you may set up an infection. Just wash the area carefully with a soft cloth, soap and water. Dont force the skin back.
