Possible phimosis: White marks/growths near the frenulum are concerning and should be investigated. 'Phimosis' is a condition where retraction of foreskin is not possible. It is caused by many conditions. Stretching will not work. Steroid cream or a circumcision can fix this problem. Please see your local urologist who can investigate this problem and fix it. ...Read more

Hi.I am having small white boils and skin tag like growths on my foreskin.I have tested negative for HSV syphillis and gonohrreh.Please advice?

See a dermatologist: The foreskin is not a common place for skin tags. Two possibilities are molluscum and warts. If the diagnosis is not clear from a physical examination, a small biopsy can be done to confirm. Both of these are viral infections of the skin and can be sexually transmitted. Until you figure out what these are, please use a condom with your partner. ...Read more

Could it be still possible for me to restore my foreskin?

Probably not..., but: Once surgical tissue removal is forever on purpose; likewise, after circumcision. Most men appreciate it for getting rid of local irritation/infection with tight long foreskin. Occasionally, very few may like its post-circ appearance due to misunderstanding expectation or changing mind after surgery although done under informed consent. If in doubt, talk and work with surgeon... Best wish ... ...Read more

Remember: It is always necessary to balance medical necessity (of patient and provider's perspective) and professional possibility so to make a logical feasible decision. ...Read more

My 13 year old brother told me his foreskin hasnt yet retracted. Does it still have time to retract?

My 13 year old brother told me his foreskin hasnt yet retracted. Does it still have time to retract?

Sure, plenty of time: The foreskin can be retracted each time one is in the shower, and eventually it should be loose enough to easily move over the glans. Some kid's foreskins are loose around age 5, but in other kid's, it loosens up in puberty. Pulling the skin back during the daily shower is good because a guy can wash the glans at that time. ...Read more
