? Prepucioplasty: Foreskin keeps splitting because you have a degree of phimosis (it's too tight to retract easily) Now unlikely to respond to steroid cream due to scarring. Next most effective treatment would be prepucioplasty. Vertical incision is made thu constricting area on upper surface & sutured transversely. Skin will now be loose & retract easily & avoid further splits once it has healed. ...Read more

Besides, healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence and obsession will help... Best. ...Read more

Why does infant circumcision with mogen clamp leave more inner foreskin than other methods? Also does scar halfway down penis mean aggressive circ?

Yes ; possibly yes: Mogen clamp leaves more inner foreskin because technique requires pulling freed foreskin over glans penis ; applying clamp beyond tip f glans thus avoiding glans injury. Thus length of inner foreskin remaining is marginally longer than length of baby's glans. Scar halfway down penis could mean that excess outer shaft skin was removed at circumcision, which circumcision technique was used. ...Read more

What can be done for a tight ring of scars on the tip of forskin of adult males? It's tight enough to stop the skin from sliding back when erect.

Scar on Foreskin: See your urologist for scar revision. Traditional corrective surgery is done via circumcision. If you are not concerned about cosmetics, a simpler procedure called a dorsal slit can be utilized. In this operation the foreskin is left intact but an incision is made through part of the prepuce so as to release the foreskin totally in the midline almost to the rim of the glans penis. ...Read more
