A 42-year-old member asked:

Is it a bad idea to use expired steroid cream for my phimosis?

Yes.: Expired medications cannot be guaranteed to maintain their potency or stability of formulation. It is a good idea to seek a new prescription, and get re-evaluated if a lot of time has passed since your phimosis was last examined. This could indicate that the treatment is not working.
