A 23-year-old male asked:
I can't pull my foreskin back either soft or erect. Is that Phimosis? If it is can I get a cream at a local pharmacy or online?

Yes, but...: Yes, you have phimosis and it is a severe one, which would be very unlikely to retract manually even with the aid of topical steroid cream. Eventually, circumcision is the choice of care; of course, there are risks since nothing is free. So, discuss the details of circumcision with the intended surgeon. Best wishes to health...
