Re: please help quick .......... foreskin
Never ever are you supposed to retract the foreskin, the only person who should retract is the owner of the penis. It is NORMAL for babies/toddlers to not be retractable - these are not adhesions that need to be broken, that is how infections happen. Many doctors are not educated and will tell parents to retract and clean under the foreskin - this is absolutely wrong and can be damaging to the boy.

:yikes: NO! Pulling it back before it's detached will cause it to tear!

Is he circumcised? And if not, has it been retracted before?
