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?

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

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 more
