Yes, the penis should be washed in the bath or shower by simply pulling back your foreskin and washing the head with soap and warm water, just like the rest of the body. Keep in mind that many boys can't pull their foreskin back until puberty, and this is completely normal. The head of the penis doesn't need to be washed until the foreskin can be pulled back, so parents of young children with non-retractible foreskins can wait until it can retract to teach your son about washing the head daily. If you're a teenager or adult and your foreskin is too tight to be pulled back, you might want to consider gradually stretching. Just search for "How do you stretch your foreskin?" on Wikianswers.

How do men clean their penises?

Keeping penis clean is very important. 1.) Gently pull the foreskin back. 2.) Rinse with warm water only. Soap under the foreskin can cause irritation and swelling. 3.) Pull the foreskin back in place over the head of your penis. Circumcised men can directly use warm water and soap and clean it carefully.

How do you treat a circumcised baby?

Never pull the infant's foreskin back. This can cause serious injury and tissue damage. Boys' foreskins will naturally retract on their own, which may be as late as the teenage years. The skin actually protects from dirt and bacteria. However, if the penis gets red or white stuff develops inside the foreskin, use a little bit of palmers coco butter.

You are 15 and you dont know if you should pull your forskin back you dont really know if you can?

Do pull it back. While it might seem that this would be a painful procedure, for reasons of health and sanitation, it needs to be done. The folds of skin surrounding the head of your penis trap shed dead skin and oil secretions. This can result in infections under the base of the head. So for sanitary reason, you need to pull the foreskin back at least once a day to clean it. It is not hard to do. Hold your penis near the head end and slide the skin back toward your body. The head of your penis will appear and then you gently wash around it. What will happen if you don't? Well, your foreskin can become too tight for sex, for one thing. The skin, like most other organs, can get accustomed to being a certain size, and it will be painful to have an erection. Simple cleaning every day will make sure that the skin is supple and will stretch easily for this function. girl likes a smelly penis! It says that you are not clean and that you might have an infection that you can give her. Pull it back.
