CHILD WITH PAIN ON RETRACTION
I happened upon your website as I was doing homework for my human
development class. I have three boys - 3 1/2 yr. old twins (identical/mirrored)
and a two yr. old.
They are all uncircumcised (but my husband is circumcised) - and
I have a few questions that my family doctor hasn't been able to make
clear for me. The youngest has what I guess is called a "natural circumcision"
- he has very little foreskin, and nothing is obstructed (he can urinate
fine). Is there anything that I should be aware of in his development
with this condition?
Secondly, the twins are very sensitive about having their foreskin
pulled back, even a little bit. They say it hurts, could this be normal?
I'm curious, because I know that more and more boys are not being
circumcised these days - yet I don't think that doctors are preparing
parents like me and my husband for caring for uncircumcised penises.
I found your site to be very interesting and informative, and though
it may not be geared towards parents with limited medical knowledge,
I feel that I learned quite a bit about something that I was generally
unaware of. Thank you
The youngest with a natural circumcision has no problem -- to be
born with this condition is even sometimes considered as a gift from
In my opinion the 3 and 1/2 year olds should not experience pain,
... I get letters all the time from men who have gone through life
adapting to such painful or uncomfortable conditions --- I suspect
the pain in this case might be because the bond between the foreskin
and glans is still unresolved, ... the so called adhesions, ... in
turn this can lead to the overhang remaining unstretched, thus not
even allowing an examination of the extent of the adhesions. -----
Suggest to your sons that they pull the foreskin forward: instead
of pulling it back
is an article written by a mother of two, it describes her attempts
to release her sons adhesions, ....
I feel sure there must be an easy method to release these adhesions...and
it is in my opinion one of the most ridiculous ommissions, and "things
overseen" by our culture that no-one yet has started researching how
to speed up the separation of the adhesions, I write my speculations
about this on another file
... I dont tell no lies, but I aint got no simple accurate answers.
---- I would need a herbalist, a chemist, or a biologist to bring the
research further, maybe you yourself will have some ideas ... So,
I hope you've discovered my very beautiful MAP
we're down in the torquoise section, "Natures Way" and "Dissolve" ...
there is one other file which talks directly about the pain from adhesions,
and why I consider it so important to release them, "Early Learning".
If I could ask you to read the above and then keep in touch with
any results or thoughts, then I'd look forward to it.
