My son is now 4 1/2 and his foreskin still does not pull back. At his last well-check, our pediatrician suggested we see a urologist...so we did. She suggested circumcising him stating, among other things, that it would increase his risk of penial cancer if we left it as it is and it didn't loosen on its own. She also said we could wait until he turns 6 and, if it still hasn't loosened, then she would definitely suggest circumcision.
In the meantime, she had us putting an over-the-counter steroid cream on it for a couple of weeks, but she was adamant that we should not attempt to force the foreskin down.
We, of course, want to avoid a circumcision and I am writing to see if you might have any tips for loosening it?
