Phimosis - very tight forskin I cannot pull it back at all.

This answer was rated:

Phimosis - very tight forskin I cannot pull it back at all. It’s like stuck to the glans, the left side is not stuck and I can put a small pin and it goes through but the right side of the slit is complete stuck to the glans. I tried putting the pin in but the forskin is completely stuck to the glans. The whole right side.
Have tried stretching and all sorts but nothing is working. Would any creams work? To detach the forskin from glans? I can urine but it goes all over the place which is annoying because I can’t pull it back. It has started to discolour and get dry too.
You will see by the pic the left side is more open. Right side is just stuck and feels glued. Please help.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?
Customer: Since born and I am fed up of it now.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing. All good

Thanks for sharing

The best and most assured treatment for this will be a circumcision

You can use Canesten cream as some time there can be some underlying infection contributing to it

But if that does not help then you will need to see the doctor as this will need a surgical excision

Please do let me know if you have any other question

What’s the benefits of that cream? Will it loosen the skin? Or detach it?

It will clear the infection in the area which may be the reason for tightness and pain

So you can give it a try before getting to your doctor

Do you know why the right side of the forskin is stuck to my glans? Is there something stuck or dirt or a extra skin or something?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
It feels like it’s been glued or something

This can happen in some people

It may have been glued the penis

That is why I think if the cream does not work then it has to be released surgically

Do u know if this is the only cream? Is there any other creams that would detach the glue ness of forskin from glans and loosen the skin?

Not really

As the only thing which can be thought as a cause is an infection so fungal or bacterial infection can be the cause

If this does not work then you will need to see the doctor as nothing over the counter will help
