To maintain a good hygiene and care of your genitals reduces the chances of developing problems like skin irritations and some common infections. Often it is assumed that men know the steps to good penis care, but it never hurts to remind yourself of the best practices. The same basic principles apply whether you have a foreskin or have been circumcised.
There are things you can do to look after yourself.
1. Gently wash your penis each day. Carefully pull back and clean underneath the foreskin, as well as the tip of your penis (the glans) using only water and a very gentle soap. Don’t scrub this sensitive area.
2. Make sure you gently pat dry the tip of your penis, the area underneath your foreskin and the rest of your penis. Replace the foreskin over the tip of the penis before putting on your underwear.
