In brief: Betamethasone yes

Stretching no, unless gently combined with steroid (such as betamethasone) cream. Forceable stretching can cause foreskin to split which in turn will cause scarring and worse phimosis.

In brief: Yes

The treatment for phimosis, tight foreskin, is a long course of topical steroid cream and manual gentle stretching of the foreskin.
If these measures fail, circumcision is then indicated.
