Many men are uncircumcised and live well as long as keeping up reasonable hygiene with no local infection or inflammation, and they should do well in daily relationship. Known to us, the only way to avoid any risk is "just don't do it." but, that's reality. So, you're the one to decide with common sense.

Here are some. ..: What described is probably nothing serious but represents acne-like lesions resulting from infected sebaceous glands, which are largely harmless and require no active Rx.
