Thank you for posting your query at
I understand your concern.

You can continue the stretching exercise and also apply steroid cream locally under the care of urologist.
However in case it does not open on its own, you may need circumcision.

Take care,

Patient replied :

Dear Doctor,

Thanks for your reply. Is it normal that my penis hole(urine opening) got split in retracting exercise.
Before doing the exercise, the opening was 2-3mm. Now it is 5-6mm also i have slight irritation while passing the urine.

Thank you for the follow up.

Don't worry. It shall settle by itself and continue stretching exercises

Patient replied :

Please prescirbe me a steroid cream i will purchase locally at a medical store here. Also a tablet to reduce the pain and irritation after passing the urine.

You can apply fucibet under the care of your doctor. For pain and irritation take t. cefixime 200 twice daily for 5 days under his guidance.
Take care.
