What is the cure for phimosis/tight foreskin?

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.

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.

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.

W orw'out surgery: Depends upon whether or not u wish to retain your foreskin. U can try twice daily application of prescription strength steroid cream like Betamethasone or kenalog (triamcinolone) to tight area twice daily for a few weeks. Definitive treatment would be circumcision. In between is prepucioplasty: tight area of foreskin is divided vertically & closed transversely, both loosens up & preserves foreskin. Consult gu dr.

I have tight foreskin and I can't retract foreskin (not even a little) hence faced dificulties during intercource (coudn't complete it), what shud I do?

Uncircumcised skin: Hi this is a very common situation and you may need some steroid cream to apply under the foreskin gently to get these adhesions to diminish. Your family physician can direct you on how to do this or refer you to a urologist who can help. But, you have nothing to fear.

Tight foreskin/diprosone help!?

Tight foreskin/diprosone help!?

Might help: Betamethosone, active ingredient in diprosone, (betamethasone dipropionate) is fairly effective at relieving phimosis (tight foreskin) in prepubertal boys, less so in adults. Thus worth trying in boys, applied to the tight area twice daily for about 3 months. Tightness may well return after you discontinue. Of course alternative is circumcision or dorsal slit prepucioplasty (foreskin preserving surgical release of phimosis..
