What Is The Best Treatment For 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. It is called balanitis xerotica obliterans (bxo) and that requires surgical treatment.

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
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.

Phimosis causes: Foreskin is normally tight or phimotic at birth, it then loosens over first few years of life. Sometimes it remains tight just because if fails to loosen. Can develop tightness in later life following inflammation & scarring due to infection under foreskin or because normal tight foreskin of childhood was forcibly retracted causing splits of foreskin. Traumatic sex or masturbation are other causes
Circumcision: Is the definitive treatment. Tight foreskin, called phimosis, is normal and physiologic in babies and young boys. Steroid cream, prescribed by a dr., can be effective in children and sometimes in adults, however there is a significant amount of recurrence. Best to consult a urologist.See 1 more doctor answer

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..
