Hi my son is 3yrs old and has been complaining of a sore widge, I asked my husband to have a look and he noticed that it was cracked and red. Should he be able to pull his foreskin back yet? As I want to make sure it is clean. If not how do I make sure we are keeping as clean as possible?

Hi i would advise that you take him to a gp.

My son had a problem with his forskin and had to be circumcised...



Please don't go panicing over it but a bit cream might solve his problem.

Hi Samantha. I have two boys and at three the for skin on my oldest did come back, but only a little. He is now five and it still hasn't come all the way back I think it takes quit a while. Is your son potty trained? If not when you chang him just pull up on it a little when cleaning and push back just a littl as well. Don't force it. Same thing with bathing. If it dosen't start to clear up in a day I do suggest a visit to the doc. I hope this helps. Jessica
