Claire: I am referring to the penis head. Since he is uncircumsized, I was referring to the inside portion that is exposed when the skin is pulled down.
Sancta: Yes, my son has ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). So he isn't capable of telling me of any pain/discomfort he's feeling.
I_Olive: I put diapers on him every night when he's already asleep, as he isn't toilet trained at night and I make it a habit to wipe/clean the outer skin with wet cotton balls from any urine residue, I sometimes pull the skin down to check for any signs of irritation or infection, because my son isn't capable of communicating well, he has Autism.
Eepster and Night Nurse: Thank you for the assurance that it is just normal.
If the penis is uncircumsized, isn't it proper to retract it a bit when washing ? Or are we supposed to leave it that way even when bathing? My husband told me that I should retract (pull some skin down) when washing it, but then he was circumsized since birth, so I am not really sure if it's just proper to be doing that.
I_Olive: I wouldn't know if it's completely retractable. The only times I (and the caregiver) pulled down the skin, I only do it to expose just the tip of the glan.
After reading other threads and getting familiar on how to care for an uncircumsized boy. I remember I have seen my son urinate and saw the skin "ballooning" before the urine went out. Does this mean his foreskin has become retractable?
