Best way to go: The gauze is stuck because some of the blood and fluid from the cut edge dried and has stuck. Soaking the gauze really well will help a bit but for better or worse, you will have to get it off. Best trick it to then gently apply traction on the gauze and then using a finger, push the skin away from the gauze. Do not pull the gauze away. There will be a second of pain and a little blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Foreskin tore during sex and when it healed it was to tight to pull back. It tore again when I did get it to retracted past my penile head. Do I need to see a doctor for it to heal proper without the tightness or will it repair itself back with time?

I have phimosis and tear my foreskin by accident is it normal for the foreskin to shrink again? How soon can I resume stretching?
Normal: Torn area will contract ; scar causing shrinkage. You probably require prescription strength steroid cream like Betamethasone or kenalog (triamcinolone) so that foreskin can loosen. Am not a believer in stretching foreskin by itself to correct phimosis. Other alternative is either a preputioplasty, if you wish to keep foreskin, or circumcision. ...Read more

Try streoid cream: Prescription stregth steroid cream such as 0.1% Betamethasone valerate or triamcinolone applied twice daily to tight are of foreskin whilst retracting, twice a day for 4 - 10 weeks might take care of the problem. Remember always to pull skin back 0over glans to avoid paraphimosis.

My foreskin can only be pulled back behind the head and that's when I am not erect. How can I fix without circumcision as an option. Bethamathasone?
See answer : Phimosis refers to the inability to adequately retract the distal foreskin over the glans penis. One to five percent of males will have nonretractible foreskins by age 16 years. 0.1 -0.05% Betamethasone dipropionate applied to the preputial orifice twice a day for up to 4-6 weeks accompanied by gentle, manual retraction/stretching of the foreskin. Circumcision reserved for persistent phimosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Circumcision im a 50yr old male. Im thinking about circumcision because I have never pulled my foreskin back. I know my size will increase and it will be better feeling over all. Question. Is it expensive the procedure. Is it painfull the healing process
Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, circumcision will not increase the size of your penis. Furthermore, by removing the foreskin, your penis may actually appear shorter than it was before. Depending on your weight and how much foreskin is actually removed it may look quite a bit shorter (see buried penis). If you are unable to pull back your foreskin, sometimes a topical steroid cream can help you to pull it back. It is generally a good idea to clean underneath your foreskin regularly. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia. Pain generally lasts for a few days after the procedure. Sutures take 2-3 weeks to dissolve and you can resume sexual activity about 3-4 weeks following the procedure. ...Read more
I'm 16 and I believe myself to have phimosis.I am unable to have the foreskin move back,flaccid or erect, and wondering about circumcision?
Doctor can help: A pediatrician or a urologist can help loosen and stretch the foreskin (and teach a patient how to work on it at home). If that is tried for a while, and without success, then a patient can ask the urologist what the different surgical options are. There are surgical ways to loosen the foreskin without cutting it off. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The doctor keeps pulling back the forskin of my uncircumcised grandson till it's sore. Why? I never did with my sons forskin. My grandson was not circumcised becuase he didn't have enough forskin to do so. But the doctor keeps pulling back, what he does h
In : In the absence of symptoms, there is no reason for the doctor to retract your grandson's foreskin. Pulling the foreskin back before it is ready, can result in pain, swelling, bleeding and possibly scarring. The foreskin will loosen up naturally sometime between birth and puberty. If it is not retractable by puberty, he should see a physician for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: I'd compare it with a limb amputation in a way - can you restore a foot once it was chopped off? One may speculate on the possibility of having a cosmetic surgery done, but if the circumcision was performed correctly, i don't see why you would want to have it reverted. If it was done incorrectly and there are damages or bad cosmetic defects, then quite a cosmetic surgery might be an option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possible by surgery: Will not grow again by itself. Surgery is quite major and performed by an occasional plastic surgeon or urologist practicing penile reconstruction. Part of thee penile skin is seperated and pulled over the glans. Resulting denuded area on penis is covered by a sin graft, usually kaken from a non hair bearing area from inner upper arm or thigh. Try and think again. My advice is best don't do it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
