The head of my penis is not sticking out it is just the foreskin is that normal? I'm uncircumcised

Phimosis: Phimosis, or preputial stenosis, is a term that usually means any condition where the foreskin of the penis cannot be retracted. Most infants are born with a foreskin that cannot be retracted and the prepuce may be tight until after puberty. A fully retractable foreskin occurs in 50% of ten year olds, 90% of 16 year olds and 98 to 99% of 18 year olds. Speak with a urologist about your options ...Read more

I am uncircumcised and my foreskin covers the full head of my penis when flaccid and erect. Is this normal? I am 19.

Perfectly normal...: Your described penile configuration with/without erection is perfectly normal. You may wonder if you need circumcision. Generally speaking, it's unnecessary to be circumcised as long as you have no problem to retract for cleansing to keep up good topical penile hygiene. In fact, many studies on uncircumcised men have suggested the uncircumcised have a higher sex satisfaction than the circumcised. ...Read more

I have small cuts under my penis head. I'm uncircumcised and my skin gets red sore when pulling back foreskin. Usually after sex my wife is sore too?

Uncirc Problem: Patients who are not circumcised may develop balanoposthitis, a long word meaning inflammation or infection of the foreskin and/or head of the penis. When cuts develop, it is usually because the foreskin is too tight or there is chronic inflammation. Keeping the penis dry is essential to recovery. If the problem persists, patients need to see a urologist to treat the underlying cause. ...Read more

I'm uncircumcised and I have a piece of skin between my foreskin and tip and a doctor told me it isn't normal should I be concerned?

Not abnormal: It is the penile frenulum, similar to web under the tongue. It connects the foreskin to penile glans just below urinary opening. It helps to return foreskin back to cover glans. It can be abnormally tight causing pain upon foreskin retraction, during sex or with masturbation. Abnormal tight frenulum can be corrected by frenulotomy or release with a transverse incision sutured transversely. ...Read more

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

A couple things: These can be a type of mole called melanotic macules or early skin growths of seborrheic keratoses. These are completely benign & tend to happen more in some people versus others. There is a small possibility that these could be early flat warts. Seborrheic keratoses & warts would become more raised over time. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure they aren't warts. ...Read more

Had sex last night with girlfriend. Uncircumcised and had a condom on. I seem to have to stressed the portions of skin attaching my foreskin. Tips?

Here are some...: You seem having long tight foreskin; if so, you may repeat gentle manual retraction of foreskin (but not forcefully to tear it) hoping in time such foreskin may be fully exposed. If hard, ineffective, or coming along with some infection or inflammation, circumcision would be the choice of long-term care. Best wishes to your health, happiness, and success. ...Read more

Please see your doc: Or urologist who may give you a steroid cream. Be careful not to tear anything so as to avoid infection. More oil in your diet may help w/overall skin lubrication also. Peace and good health. Fish oil/olive oil, perhaps 2-3 tbls daily. ...Read more

Two-year-old uncircumcised toddler. Red and inflamed around the eye of his penis... Havnt ever pulled his foreskin back but noticed when he showed me!

Don't force it back: It is normal for the foreskin to not retract at this age. The foreskin of an uncircumcised boy is often fully retractable by age 5-7, but sometimes it can take until age 10-12. You should not retract your son's foreskin with force at this age. His symptoms could be from adhesions, dermatitis, or a yeast infection. I suggest that he be seen by a doctor. ...Read more

My boyfriend split hit fore skin and a little bit of the head of his penis during sex. He's uncircumcised. What can we do to ease pain and fix it?

Ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen): Pain meds should give some immediate relief. Then bf should see a urologist because he almost certainly needs to be circumcised. Split in a tight foreskin will certainly scar as it heals and meke the phimosis (tight foreskin) worse. ...Read more

Can you tell me if a baby is uncircumsized should the foreskin slide back so that you can clean the head of the penis?

Can you tell me if a baby is uncircumsized should the foreskin slide back so that you can clean the head of the penis?

Usually not: Foreskin is naturally adherent to the glans penis at birth and 1% of newborns have a fully retractile foreskin. Foreskin opening is physiologically narrow in most babies up to one year of age. Not abnormal up to and beyonf adge 3-years for foreskin not to retract completely, however the opening should be wide enough to prevent obstruction to urine flow. Only retract foreskin as far as adhesions. ...Read more

I am a teenager, and we don't have a lot of money but I need a good face cleaning routine and plan to lose weight. I am overweight by 15 kilos, ?

Don't need to retract: It is not necessary to retract the foreskin in a 1yo. If there is redness or irritation, it may mean that there is soap left behind after a bath or that there is an infection. See your pediatrician for an evaluation to determine if there is an infection present and how to care for your son's penis. ...Read more
