Correct answer is option B
Male perianal care involves washing the genital and anal areas. Cleaning the surrounding perianal area before cleaning the genital area is important.

While cleaning, the foreskin of the uncircumcised male is pulled back to expose the glans penis for cleaning and it is returned to the normal position immediately after cleaning and rinsing.

It is the tip of the penis that is cleaned in a circular motion from the meatus forward not the whole penis it. The genital area is always cleaned first before the rectal area. Do not use the same area on the washcloth for each washing and rinsing and rinsing stroke for female residents.
