PhimosisAnd Surgical Correction

Resolved Question:

Dear Doctor,

I am having an embarrassing problem which is I've never been able to pull my foreskin past the head. I have done some research of my own and found out that it is because the fraenulum is too short. I think it is because the place is sensitive and not particularly clean. I want to if there is any solutions like stretches that would help or should I for a surgery? I want to keep these issues private.

Thanks for the question. It would be most probable that you are suffering from phimosis. Phimosis is caused due to pathological problems for a person of your age. This may be because of scarring of the prepuce after infection and inflammation. Conservative intervention include: Stretching exercise of the prepuce and tropical corticosteroids, usually administered concomitantly with routine stretching exercises. The surgical treatment is done through circumcision and preputioplasty. Plastic surgery can also be done to widen the pre-nuptial ring.
