Try them both! ...Read more

I am unable to clean the entire smegma collected under foreskin of penis. Can some cream or emollient be advised please ?

I am unable to clean the entire smegma collected under foreskin of penis. Can some cream or emollient be advised please ?

Phimosis, tight foreskin, could be cause of inability to easily retract foreskin which would make penile hygiene difficult. Need to see your Dr. or urologist if foreskin does not retract easily. This might require steroid cream or even surgery. Surgery would be either circumcision or prepucioplasty/dorsal slit. ...Read more
