In brief: Prescription

The creams which work are prescription strength such as 0.
1% Betamethasone cream to be applied twice daily for 2 months. There are no side effects and one can expect an 80 % chance of success.

In brief: 0.1% Betamethosone

(betaval) or kenalog (triamcinolone) cream. Steroid cream has a fairly high success rate provided the phimotic ring isn't sacrred.
Surgery is the only treatment if the frepucial opening on the phimotic foreskin is scarred.
