Vitiligo on Penis: Hi i am sure you hate it in medicine when the doctor hems and haws. But, i think in this case it would be difficult to predict. I think one would be remiss if we did not acknowledge that vitiligo can change and 'spread'. But, it does not have to happen. It sounds like you are under good care and using a product to help.

No: Absolutely not. It is completely normal for an infant to tug on, fondle or rub his penis once he's developmentally capable of finding it with his hand.

How can I care for my uncircumcised baby's penis?

Nothing: There is no care necessary for a newborn's uncircumcised penis. Most times the foreskin cannot be retracted initially so trying to pull it back will result in pain and possible scarring.

No: Do not get into stretching exercises to enlarge the penis. Outside of the approved vacuum device to allow an erection, don't manipulate the penis to enlarge it. It is dangerous. Enjoy what you have and when it is worn out, we will see about getting you a new one.

Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
See pedi urologist: An experienced pediatric urologist, or a reconstructive urologic surgeon with plenty of experience with urethral reconstruction, are probably the best drs. To deal with this problem. We advise patients that the urinary meatus should reach the the coronal sulcus (groove at base of glans) for satisfactory fertilility. Alternative is to do nothing if functions (urination & sex) are satisfactory..
