When my son was born (7 now) he got some infections from the weakened skin barrier (x-link) and the doctor said he wouldn't do the circumcision but if we wanted to have it done, he could find a doctor that would. My son baths every day at least twice a day. We always have to remind him to clean it right, but otherwise that hasn't been a real issue. He still wets the bed (not sure why but all the doctors tell me not to worry about it) I have him put lotion on his diaper area to help prevent diaper rash because he's so suseptable to them. He still gets them and it can flare up his whole back and chest and down to his knees. Just recently he called me into the bathroom and his penis was so swollen he couldn't pull the skin back to clean it. When we finally got it back, it was practically stuck there. I am bringing him to the doctor's tomorrow and am going to ask what could cause the swelling. If it's the urinating all night, or the rashes, or something I don't know about.
Moral of the story: If I could go back I would have had him circumcised. We may have to do it now, and at this age, I fear the pain he will have. Sorry boys for making you think of this.
Hope that helps. Good luck with your decision.
