... Hugs28~ Thanks for the advice. I have been using a&d. He has been crying less often when I change him. Its not as red anymore but the darn thing just wants to keep fusing. I notice with every change the skin looks as if it is ready to fuse again. So I just gently push down with a wipe as I am cleaning him up. So far so good.

... If it is still "fusing" together when you are pulling it back with every diaper change, you have to pull it further down. I had the problem with DS and the dr said you have to pull all the foreskin back till you get the whole head out, or till you get the mushroom look. Then put A&D ointment in that groove. This is where it starts to fuse. (18 replies)
... did not have my son circumsised and the instructions with were to pull it back to clean it but not to force it.

When my first son was older around 9/10 i said to his dad to teach him how men go about personal hygiene as i... (6 replies)

We should have been... (6 replies)
... How old is your son? I have read that we should not pull the foreskin back since it could tear or hurt them. Both my sons are uncircumcised and I just pull the tip back a tiny amount to clean the very tip. But ask your pediatrician. I have also read that the foreskin will loosen up on its own and can take a long time to do so. Is your son having problems going to the... (6 replies)
