Proper Penis Care for the Uncircumcized

Can a doctor provide some basic tips on proper care for an uncircumcised penis.  Basic questions I have are:

1. How often should I wash my penis, that is pull the foreskin down and clean?  I've heard you can over and under clean.  Is this true?

2. What should I used to clean?  Any particular products recommended?

3. My penis tends to be a bit sensitive to the touch when the foreskin is pulled back. I tend to apply soap on my fingers and rub gently.  Is this a good approach?

Anything else I should be doing for general maintenance?

There is no special care but like any part of the body clean with soap and water retracting the foreskin full.

You may find this page helpful. Use mild soap, because regular bar body soap can be drying and abrasive.
