Customer Question

Hi.
I'm a 38 year old male. I have a question about my foreskin. I can retract the foreskin over the head of my penis easily when flaccid. But when erect, I can only partially retract it.
Is there anything I can do?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David.

Dr. David :

you can use lubricant and slowly pull back the foreskin slowly on a daily basis to slowly stretch the foreskin.

Dr. David :

and over time, you will be able to pull back the foreskin while erect.

Dr. David :

you can also do this in the shower as well with soap as a lubricant.

JACUSTOMER-l6dvw3z3- : Is there any lubricant you would recommend? Is Vaseline suitable?
Dr. David :

make sure you pull back the foreskin daily to wash with soap and water.

Dr. David :

I would use a water based lubricant like KY jelly.

Dr. David :

vasaline is oil based and hard to wash off.

Dr. David :

water based lubricants are easier to use

JACUSTOMER-l6dvw3z3- : Do I put the lubricant on the head of my penis before the erection? I'm guessing it needs to be inside the foreskin.
Dr. David :

yes, you can use lubricant there. and it will help the foreskin slide.

Dr. David :

but it will not stretch over night.

Dr. David :

it can take weeks and weeks to slowly stretch the foreskin.

Dr. David :

be patient

Dr. David :

and it will get better with time.

Dr. David :

best of luck to you.

JACUSTOMER-l6dvw3z3- : Great, thank you.
