Munchausen syndrome by proxy syndrome (MSbP)

A lot of people think it's easier to keep a circumcised penis clean, but it's actually not. It's the other way around. With a circumcised penis, you have a post-surgical circumcision wound in a dirty diaper. You have to worry about bandaging that, keeping that clean, pulling the foreskin remnant back to keep it from re-adhering, applying Vaseline, watching for infection, skin bridges, meatal stenosis.... the list goes on. You don't have to do any of that with an intact baby. Parents who have both intact and circumcised sons in the home report that intact boys are hands down the easier of the two to keep clean. Question circumcision.
