My ds has a red, sore penis.

Yes he should be so long as the foreskin retracts with ease. It should never be forced.

My ds is six and complained earlier that his penis was sore. I had a look and it did look red around the foreskin.

He had this when he was a toddler and the gp gave me some anti-fungal cream and said I didn't need to pull the foreskin back to wash it.

My ds washes himself now and has a bath every otber night. I wondered if he should be washing under the foreskin as my dh does.

Sorry, I am clueless! My dh is not much help
