The spring that connects the foreskin to the penis it's to short well I think it is.. I can retract my foreskin when erected but it hurts and the string bit feels really tight and it is painful when having sex

Dear Sir,

You seem to be suffering from tight frenulum and the treatment for the same is usually surgery. The surgery is frenuloplasty or frenulectomy. The details can be found on

I usually give a trial of local cream application prior to surgery. Kindly apply Momate F cream locally for 2 weeks under the care of your doctor and see if there is any improvement.

Patient replied :

Ok thanks should I show you a picture before I go to a gp? And is there any cream you can get in Australia without prescription?


A picture is not really necessary, your description is good enough.You can buy any 1% cortisone over the counter cream.

Take care


Patient replied :

Will Cortic DS Cream 1% 50g do the same thing?

Yes, that should do. Do a test application and if you feel some discomfort avoid it. Also see the package insert of guidelines. Do not apply for more than 1-2 weeks under any circumstances. If this is a prescription medicine it is better to get your Doctors guidance. Thank you
