My foreskin can only be pulled back behind the head and that's when I am not erect. How can I fix without circumcision as an option. Bethamathasone?

My foreskin can only be pulled back behind the head and that's when I am not erect. How can I fix without circumcision as an option. Bethamathasone?

See answer: Phimosis refers to the inability to adequately retract the distal foreskin over the glans penis. One to five percent of males will have nonretractible foreskins by age 16 years. 0.1 -0.05% Betamethasone dipropionate applied to the preputial orifice twice a day for up to 4-6 weeks accompanied by gentle, manual retraction/stretching of the foreskin. Circumcision reserved for persistent phimosis. ...Read more

Unfortunately,: Unfortunately, circumcision will not increase the size of your penis. Furthermore, by removing the foreskin, your penis may actually appear shorter than it was before. Depending on your weight and how much foreskin is actually removed it may look quite a bit shorter (see buried penis).

If you are unable to pull back your foreskin, sometimes a topical steroid cream can help you to pull it back. It is generally a good idea to clean underneath your foreskin regularly.

The procedure can be done under local anesthesia. Pain generally lasts for a few days after the procedure. Sutures take 2-3 weeks to dissolve and you can resume sexual activity about 3-4 weeks following the procedure. ...Read more

I'm 16 and I believe myself to have phimosis. I am unable to have the foreskin move back, flaccid or erect, and wondering about circumcision?

Doctor can help: A pediatrician or a urologist can help loosen and stretch the foreskin (and teach a patient how to work on it at home). If that is tried for a while, and without success, then a patient can ask the urologist what the different surgical options are. There are surgical ways to loosen the foreskin without cutting it off. ...Read more

Prepucium: Try to retract it a little at a time several times a day when going to urinate or after showering (do not force it completely down to the crown of glance). You may use some lubricant like baby oil, KY jelly. Or astrolide. ...Read more

The doctor keeps pulling back the forskin of my uncircumcised grandson till it's sore. Why? I never did with my sons forskin. My grandson was not circumcised becuase he didn't have enough forskin to do so. But the doctor keeps pulling back, what he does h

In: In the absence of symptoms, there is no reason for the doctor to retract your grandson's foreskin. Pulling the foreskin back before it is ready, can result in pain, swelling, bleeding and possibly scarring. The foreskin will loosen up naturally sometime between birth and puberty. If it is not retractable by puberty, he should see a physician for evaluation. ...Read more

Is it possible to do foreskin restoration after an adult circumcision?

Is it possible to do foreskin restoration after an adult circumcision?

Probably not: I'd compare it with a limb amputation in a way - can you restore a foot once it was chopped off? One may speculate on the possibility of having a cosmetic surgery done, but if the circumcision was performed correctly, I don't see why you would want to have it reverted. If it was done incorrectly and there are damages or bad cosmetic defects, then quite a cosmetic surgery might be an option. ...Read more

Is there a way to reverse circumcision or to make the foreskin grow again?

Is there a way to reverse circumcision or to make the foreskin grow again?

Possible by surgery: Will not grow again by itself. Surgery is quite major and performed by an occasional plastic surgeon or urologist practicing penile reconstruction. Part of thee penile skin is seperated and pulled over the glans. Resulting denuded area on penis is covered by a sin graft, usually kaken from a non hair bearing area from inner upper arm or thigh. Try and think again. My advice is best don't do it. ...Read more

Phimosis: Most Dr. S in the US recommend circumcision for 20-year-old with tight foreskin (phimosis). First alternative is 1% betamethasone steroid cream applied twice daily to tight area for 2-3 months which may take care of problem. 2nd alternative, if you wish to retain your foreskin, find a urologist who will perform a dorsal slit or prepucioplasty.

Mmy foreskin is very tight. I am considering the option of circumcision. Will it hurt?

General anesthesia: You won't feel a thing during the operation if done under general anesthesia. Surgeon, if requested, can perform a local anesthetic block by injection at base of penis before you awake. Will be pain free for a few hours. Then suggest Ativan (lorazepam) at night to prevent or reduce painful nocturnal erections. You can also get a prescription for pain meds so it won't hurt much in the long run. Good luck. ...Read more

How to remove foreskin without circumcision n sex? I want to remove foreskin over glans and explore glans?

Remove or preserve?: Physically stretching a tight foreskin over the penile glans can only lead to skin splitting, then scarring and ending up with a worse problem. Steroid cream, such as Betamethasone, when applied twice daily for many weeks to the tight area may loosen things up. 50% will tighten up again after applications cease. Alternative is a minor dorsal slit through the tight area, this preserves foreskin. ...Read more

Circumcision: 1. Circumcision is the best option for management now and for future retention of recurrent problems. 2. Dorsal slit partial phalloplasty can be done to release the tight band of distal foreskin. Still surgery but not a circumcision. 3. Tissue expanding technique can stretch the tight foreskin, but it is painful and can get complicated by skin infection. ...Read more

I'm using Daktarin for cuts on my foreskin but I have many scars and the cuts heal slowly or not at all. How do I heal them both without circumcision?

? Prepucioplasty: Foreskin keeps splitting because you have a degree of phimosis (it's too tight to retract easily) Now unlikely to respond to steroid cream due to scarring. Next most effective treatment would be prepucioplasty. Vertical incision is made thu constricting area on upper surface & sutured transversely. Skin will now be loose & retract easily & avoid further splits once it has healed. ...Read more
