In brief: Retracting foreskin

Simply pulling back on foreskin tto uncover the glans.
Low success rate.Can be facilitated by using steroid cream around tight area.Continue using cream until skin retracts easily. Please make sure foreskin is pulled back over the glans or else paraphimosis can occur when retracted foreskin forms a tight band around the penis which cuts off lymph & blood return from foreskin. This is an emergency.

In brief: Varies with patient

The ways to stretch a tight foreskin varies, depending on age, tightness, presence of foreskin infection, and the dedication of the patient.
With no infection, stretching is less urgent and can be more gradual. After puberty, stretch stronger. Some patients hold the skin back near the base of the penis, and let an erection do the stretching. Call dr. If foreskin is "stuck" behind "head" of penis.
