In brief: It can help.
The use of Betamethasone cream, along with good hygiene and stretching exercises can help with phimosis.
Whether is can fix the problem depends on the degree of phimosis and the presence of scarring. In young boys, the issue can resolve spontaneously, and sped up with topical steroids. In adults, especially if scarring has occurred, the success rate drops.
