Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

this can be difficult to over come.

Dr. David :

you can try using soap and pulling it back over your head of your penis in the shower and see if that is easier to wash.

Dr. David :

you need to be washing under your foreskin with soap and water daily.

Dr. David :

it is better to have started pulling back your forskin over your penis when you were younger like age 13-14

Dr. David :

you can start now and be gentle and use soap to lubricate the foreskin.

Dr. David :

you should also see your GP doctor about it and get your foreskin examined.

Dr. David :

if the skin is too tight to stretch, you might need a small surgery to cut your forskin open larger so it is easier to pull back.

Dr. David :

do you have a GP doctor you can see ?

Customer: Don't think you understand how tight it actually is. I can't even see my head. And it has been like this for a few years I've just been to embareced to do anything about it
Dr. David :

well, you have to then see a doctor about it and get it examined.

Dr. David :

this is too tight to pull back and wash.

Dr. David :

and that is not good.

Dr. David :

so you might have to have a small procedure to open the foreskin up

Customer: Yes would I have to get circumcised?
Dr. David :

no

Dr. David :

you can have a procedure called a phimosis surgery

Customer: Is there any chance it could be infected at all?
Dr. David :

which will just cut your foreskin a bit to make it easier to pull back.

Dr. David :

it could get infected since you are not able to pull it back to wash daily.

Dr. David :

once you have the surgery and are able to pull it back all the way and wash properly, this will prevent infection.

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

Customer: Will I have to pay for that if it's done by the NHS?
Dr. David :

no, this will be covered by the NHS

Dr. David :

but you have to see your doctor about it

Dr. David :

and be registered to see a GP doctor

Dr. David :

and tell them you have phimosis or narrowed foreskin.

Dr. David :

and that you need a surgery procedure to cut the foreskin larger so you can retract it for daily washings.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.

Dr. David :

if done for now, please leave positive feedback below the chat box

Customer: Okay thank you very much I've been wanting to get this off my chest for so many years!
Dr. David :

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

Dr. David :

you are welcome
