User :   coz i was told by some1 from ur healthcare service
User :   yea
Doctor :   That is normal
User :   i think the foreskin gets stuck 2 glans which sticks the urine
Doctor :   and if you keep the local area clean and tidy
User :   and then wen i push my foreskin back i see some redness on foreskin i guess
Doctor :   witjh daily cleaning with a dettol or soap

User :   the nurse called the pharmacy
User :   and prescribed it for me
User :   but i just hope
User :   that without seeing me the doc has got it rite

Doctor :   it can be applied to the affected areas
Doctor :   but inform the doctor if you see any allergic reaction
Doctor :   and stop using it
