Re: phimosis

i want to add that from everything i've heard, all the ladies above are 100000% correct. Im so glad you asked before blinding following the doctor, good for you!!! I found this article, ive seen a more recent one, with the same info from the AAP, but i cant seem to find it right now.

just an exerpt:

Summary: Care of the uncircumcised boy is quite easy. ``Leave it alone'' is good advice. External washing and rinsing on a daily basis is all that is required. Do not retract the foreskin in an infant, as it is almost always attached to the glans. Forcing the foreskin back may harm the penis, causing pain, bleeding, and possibly adhesions. The natural separation of the foreskin from the glans may take many years. After puberty, the adult male learns to retract the foreskin and cleanse under it on a daily basis.
