Herbal Treatment For Tight Foreskin
What is a cure for phimosis e.G. Tight foreskin. That doesn't come back so my bellend doesn't come out and I don't want to go and see my doctor?
Surgery or cream: U need to see a urologist. Definitive cure is circumcision surgery to remove tight foreskin. Some men respond to twice daily application of steroid cream, which requires dr's prescription to tight area, twice daily x 1 - 3 months. Problems needs treatment for hygeine, reove risk of penile cancer developing & comfort.See 1 more doctor answer
Steroids: You can sometimes treat phimosis with a steroid cream applied tot he foreskin. I use Betamethasone for my patients with phimosis that do not want a circumcision. The other option is surgery. However, I recommend you get checked bya urologist. There is one condition which causes phimosis which can be dangerous. It is called balanitis xerotica obliterans (bxo) and that requires surgical treatment.
I have incredibly tight foreskin, I can't pull it over the head of my penis and if I try too hard it hurts. Is this normal?
Phimosis: Presume foreskin is covering glans penis & can not be retracted for necessary hygiene. Suggest you consult a urologist who will likely recommend circumcision. You might be a candidate for application of prescription strength steroid cream, but I get the sense that you need surgery. You are at risk for balanitis, inflammation of head of penis and possibly penile cancer if feft untreated.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Tight foreskin or phimosis is a common medical problem. If it is causing you pain or bleeding with erections or difficulty with urinating it should be treated. See your doctor, for mild-moderate cases a steroid cream and careful retraction of skin can cure the phimosis. For severe cases, a circumcision is curative.See 1 more doctor answer
Retracting foreskin: Simply pulling back on foreskin tto uncover the glans. Low success rate. Can be facilitated by using steroid cream around tight area. Continue using cream until skin retracts easily. Please make sure foreskin is pulled back over the glans or else paraphimosis can occur when retracted foreskin forms a tight band around the penis which cuts off lymph & blood return from foreskin. This is an emergency.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Inability to retract foreskin completely is known as phimosis. May be congenital (present since birth) or acquired (usually related to chronic inflammation). Sometimes application of a topical steroid cream can effectively treat this problem. Other times, circumcision or dorsal slit is required. Recommend evaluation by a urologist to obtain proper diagnosis and discussion of treatment options.
Phimosis: See a urologist...Pulling can rip and cause infection.See 1 more doctor answer
Correct.: This young man has severe phimosis. Because he has been unable to fully retract his foreskin, he is likely unable to routinely clean within the fold of skin next to the head of the penis. This can lead to skin irritation and pain in the short run, and significant issues in the long run. He should be evaluated by a urologist.See 1 more doctor answer
See ur Dr/Urologist: There is a chance the tightening is due to a fungal infection or skin change that may be amenable to topical steroid and/or antifungal. Should get urological exam to identify treatment options best for your situation. (aka: phimosis, for more information see: http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/phimosis).
Circumcision or?: Circumcision takes care of the problem permanently. Men wanting to retain foreskin might want prepucioplasty, involves a vertical incision through the tight area on top of penis which is then sutured transversely, the foreskin then remodels as time goes by. Other treatment, which works better before puberty & only works for some males is repeated application of prescription strength steroid cream.
Consult a urologist: Tight foreskin ; satisfactory sex are incompatible. You might respond to a prolonged course of prescription steroid cream such as Betamethasone applied twice daily to tight area whilst retracting foreskin. Surgical alternatives are circumcision, which removes entire foreskin or prepucioplasty, which preserves the foreskin. Good luck.
I have a very tight foreskin of my penis. I can just see the tip of the penis. I can't stretch it down. How can get a smooth foreskin?
Foreskin is Stuck: There are treatments for this. Some times a steroid cream applied by q-tip under the foreskin can help alleviate the stickiness of the foreskin and allows with time a full retraction to normal. Your family doctor or a urologist can be of benefit to you for this problem.
I don't want to go for circumscision for tight foreskin. So is there any other minor surgery which can loosen the foreskin rather then removing it?
Phimosis: Not really. A "dorsal slit" would result in what I feel you would consider a cosmetically unacceptable result. Circumcision is your best option.
What procedures are there for a tight foreskin? 9 yrs ago I was told circumcision was the only solution after frenuloplasty didn't fix problem (27y/o)
3 possible options: 1) twice daily application of prescription strength steroid cream, 0.1% Betamethasone or kenalog, (triamcinolone) to tight area of forcenkin whilst retracting. 2) frenuloplasty, in which tight area of foreskin is incised vertically ; sutured transversely or z platy thru tight area. Both alternatives to circumcision 3) final option is a "minimal" or partial circumcision, i.e. Only removing phimotic/tight area.See 1 more doctor answer
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. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
I am having tight foreskin over penis and very painful to slide. Will there be any problems in future I mean for sex life?
No, but just...: What described strongly suggested tight long foreskin is the culprit to cause the problem you have now. Short-term solution is good topical hygiene; long-term, circumcision. Either way will not affect your sex life but recurrent local discomfort. So, see and talk with urologist, and you decide what is reasonable for you. Best wish...
I have inflammation on the foreskin of penis and white powder like thing on foreskin and tight foreskin when I try to retract it during erection.
See a dermatologist: You need to see a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis. You may have a yeast or other type of infection.
