Steroid cream is meant for adults - not children.
There is no need for them to be retractable until they reach puberty and/or are having sex (and not even then either)
It's very possible you will never know if and when your boys become retractable. There is also no need for them to clean underneath them. Foreskin is self cleaning just as the vagina is. Douching used to be the norm, it's now known to be detrimental to normal flora.
Stop trying to retract them, it's only going to cause problems like micro tears that will allow the introduction of bacteria, and paraphimosis from having the foreskin get stuck behind the glans.
It will happen when it happens, as long as they can pass urine, there is nothing to worry about and nothing you need to do.
I live in an area with a less than 1% circ rate and all the doctors know to leave little penises alone. (One of the things I really love about Nova Scotia!) There's a really wide range of normal on this one. Some boys retract when they're 3 and some do it when they're 12, and nothing bad at all happens to them.
You're right that your boys will be too old for you to be that involved with their intimate hygiene before long, but so what? If they're too old for you to do it, they'll definitely be old enough to understand you when you say, "once your foreskin pulls back over the head of your penis, give it a rinse-off when you're in the shower". There, taken care of!
|I often receive calls from distraught parents who say that a doctor insists that their little boy needs to be circumcised because there is something wrong|
|Probably, the only problem you will encounter with the foreskin of your intact boy is that someone will think that he has a problem.|
I am a little concerned about this because it won't be all that long before it becomes inappropriate for me to be dealing with the intimate details of their personal hygiene and I would like them to be well practiced at retracting their foreskins and cleaning underneath by then.
Any thoughts about how to deal with this?
