If forskin was: Tight or stuck to head of penis and pulled away when drunk it can cause pain. Please see your doc for an exam to make sure all is ok.

How to "stretch" my foreskin?

Use steroid cream: Try to retract foreskin, then apply prescription strength steroid cream (ie 0.1% Betamethasone or Kenalog) to tight area morning & night until loose. Always pull foreskin back over glans to avoid paraphimosis. Will not work if foreskin opening is scarred, in which case surgery will be required.

When should my foreskin detach?

When should my foreskin detach?

Foreskin does what?: Detach? Come off? I do not believe this can happen. Do you mean that the foreskin cannot be pulled back over the glans or head of the penis? If you cannot retract the foreskin over the glans then I would recommend that you see your family physician.

Foreskin is intact is it hygenic?

Circumcision: Has been shown to decrease the risk of infections in both the man and his sexual partner (s). However, circumcision is rarely indicated in an adult male due to the associated risks. Practicing good hygiene is very important and can make a difference. Keep the foreskin and glans clean by washing thoroughly with antibiotic soap and water.

None in my opinion: This requires major surgery. Cosmetic results are not very good, even in the best of hands. Only benefit might be if subject feels psychologically crippled due to lack of poreskin!

What sort of problem is an abrasion?

What sort of problem is an abrasion?

Let me explain: In dermatology, an abrasion is a wound caused by superficial damage to the skin, no deeper than the epidermis. It is less severe than a laceration, and bleeding, if present, is minimal. Mild abrasions, also known as grazes or scrapes, do not scar or bleed, but deep abrasions may lead to the formation of scar tissue. A more traumatic abrasion that removes all layers of skin is called an avulsion.

What's the fastest way to heal an abrasion?

What's the fastest way to heal an abrasion?

Air is bad: Gotta disagree with prior answer. If you remember that wounds heal by growing healthy moist tissue in from the bottom or by the elastic sides pulling things in from the sides, then having a scabs form slows down healing. Open wounds should be exposed to air for only the shortest time possible. Cover with clean dressing changed avery opther day and protect it from trauma will provide healing.

How to treat a swollen foreskin?

Swollen foreskin: Does the area itch and is it flaky? If so see a dermatologist or a urologist. Are you able to urinate without problem? I would refrain from having sex until this is better.

Here are some. ..: Do white spots look like millet? If so and without long foreskin-related inflammation, they most likely represent hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which are harmless & require no Rx at all. Nonetheless, without a direct look, a prefect Dx is hard to come by. So, seek professional evaluation & counseling timely.

What are some good remedy for deep abrasion?

Possible scaring: When skin injuries go deep into the skin, past the dermal/epidermal junction which is between these 2 layers, then scaring will occur. I have notice that individuals are different in their tendency to scar and to what extent. Some things you can try to prevent or lessen the effects of scarring are mederma, vitE oil, aloe, cocoa butter, or scar reducing kits.
