What do I do if my 1.5 yr old sons foreskin won't retract? It seems too tight when I pull it back to clean it. It only retracts a little bit.

In brief: See below

The foreskin covering glans penis does not become fully retractable until age 4 in most boys.
Until then, gently retract the foreskin to clean. Forceful retraction may create severe swelling of foreskin by interrupting circulation.
