Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, thank you for your question. I’m Dr. Ben and I’m here to assist you today. Please allow me a few moments to review your question and I’ll be right back.

May I ask if this is causing any specific problems for you (difficulty urinating, irritation, infection, pain etc)?
Approximately how far can you retract the foreskin?
If it is not bothering you, then there is no compulsion to have any treatment at all. However, should it start to cause any symptoms then there are several ways to manage it. Initially regular application of a steroid cream can help to loosen the foreskin/phimosis. Otherwise a Urologist can do different types of (minor) surgical procedures to treat it.
Does this help?
There is still a pretty good chance that it will detach naturally over the next 2-3 years. If not, then the above measures can be considered.
Is there anything else you would like to ask me?
Just a courtesy follow up as I didn’t hear back from you.
