Boys should wash their penis and scrotum the way they wash other body parts. Teach your son to regularly clean the tip of his penis. Avoid cleaning inside the foreskin until it can easily be pulled back.
Use a dry towel or flannel to gently rub your child dry. Dry all over your child’s body. Drying before getting dressed can help avoid rashes. In warmer weather, your child can air-dry before dressing.
Teach children to wipe their bottoms with toilet paper – you might have to help, depending on your child’s age. Show how much paper to use by counting squares. Girls should always wipe from front to back.
