How to clean smegma on my child (7yr) penis. We tried warm bath, retracted the foreskin..But he has lt of pain. ?

ADHERENT FORESKIN,: When penile foreskin gets attached to the glans penis, the natural greasy white substance 'smegma' gets trapped in the constricted part(corona glandis). Over time, smegma accumulation makes a bump, smelling, can get infected. This is seen more in obese boys, as their penis gets buried in the pubic fat. For pain give Ibuprofen 2-3 times daily, use vaseline on the area to prevent recurrent adhesion. ...Read more

Penis sore between using baby wipes to clean and protected sex it's red the tip it keeps switch places anxiety?

Penis sore between using baby wipes to clean and protected sex it's red the tip it keeps switch places anxiety?

Anxiety seems likely: I doubt baby wipes would do this, but if you think it's possible, stop using them. As you suggest yourself, anxiety indeed is often the explanation for what seems to be a slightly red penis tip, without other obvious symptoms like painful urination, open sores, or discharge from the penis. And in my experience, when someone suspects his or her own symptoms are anxiety, usually s/he is correct. ...Read more

Can't retract foreskin much at all. Can forceful masturbation stretch it out better?

Can't retract foreskin much at all.  Can forceful masturbation stretch it out better?

Would not recommend: A tight foreskin can be a problem. If you enjoy being "uncut", and depending on your age and sexual practices, you need to develop a routine of attempting gentle retraction and stretching of the foreskin. For hygiene and other reasons, it would be best if you could fully retract and fully replace the foreskin. Do this over a long period of time. If problems, see your pcp or urologist. ...Read more

Does it matter that I can't pull my baby's foreskin back all the way when bathing him?

Does it matter that I can't pull my baby's foreskin back all the way when bathing him?

No: The care of uncircumcised penis in a baby is easy. You leave it alone. Bathe your baby frequently and cleanse the penis on the outside. No other manipulation is needed as the foreskin will retract on its own over time. The entire process takes many years. If you forcefully try to retract the foreskin you may cause pain, tears and adhesions latter on. ...Read more

I stretched/pulled forward my foreskin and put alcohol, soap and warm water while in shower to get the inside of foreskin 100% clean. Good idea?

I stretched/pulled forward my foreskin and put alcohol, soap and warm water while in shower to get the inside of foreskin 100% clean. Good idea?

Here are some...: It's nice to see you diligently clean your foreskin, but your described effort seems more intense than the usual & suggests you might have been bothered by the long tight foreskin-related inflammation with or without infection. If so, seek pro-evaluation & counseling so to see if circumcision may be needed for long-term care. Otherwise, gently cleansing and drying foreskin should eb all you need. ...Read more

My baby has rashes at her diaper area. I've tried drapolene cream and made her use cloth diapers. But the rash is still there?

My baby has rashes at her diaper area. I've tried drapolene cream and made her use cloth diapers. But the rash is still there?

Anti fungal: You need an anti fungal cream. Diaper rashes come from the same type of organism as jock itch and athletes foot. Using a steroid cream alone will not cure it. Contact your doctor for a different cream. Also try letting your baby have some time without a diaper on to keep the area free of moisture and friction from the diaper itself. ...Read more

7 year olds penis still retracts into fat pad. He is circ'd. Normal penis when pushing on fat pad. Pedi say all is normal. Will he grow out of this?

7 year olds penis still retracts into fat pad. He is circ'd. Normal penis when pushing on fat pad. Pedi say all is normal. Will he grow out of this?

Probably: 7 year old boys in this situation (hidden penis) often grow out of it because as he grows and "loses fat" the normal penis will be more visible. Its the fat around the penis that needs to be addressed. If he has a healthy balanced diet, exercise options, and can rest well, the fat pad will lessen as he grows and his self confidence will increase. ...Read more
