Doctor :   or is it the first time it happened ?
User :   it used to back a little and then would come back in couple of hours, however this time is has gone back quite lot almost from the head 50% and has not come back
Doctor :   Can you see the smegma or white cheesy material under your fore skin ?
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   This is called Para Phimosis
User :   yesterday some drops of white liquid look like sperm released when i was trying to pull back
Doctor :   Paraphimosis occurs when the foreskin of an uncircumcised male cannot be pulled back over the head of the penis. Symptoms: The foreskin is pulled back (retracted) behind the rounded tip of the penis (glans) and stays there.
User :   ok whats the way to get it back
Doctor :   1.Pressing on (compression of) the head of the penis while pushing the foreskin forward may reduce the swelling due to paraphimosis. 2. If this fails, prompt surgical circumcision will be needed.
Doctor :   If paraphimosis is left untreated, it can disrupt blood flow to the tip of the penis. In extreme (and rare) cases, this may lead to: Damage to the penis tip
Loss of the penis tip
Doctor :   These are the best options : Circumcision is the most common operation. The surgeon separates the foreskin from the head of the penis (if it is stuck down), cuts the foreskin away and closes the incision with stitches. The glans will seem very sensitive after the operation, because it is not used to being exposed. Most men have erections during their sleep, so for a few weeks after the operation, you may wake in the middle of the night with a sore penis; taking a pain-relieving medication at bedtime will help. Wear loose boxer shorts and use a condom during sex for the first month or two.
If the doctor thinks the cause is balanitis xerotica obliterans, steroid creams will be used first; this often relieves the condition for several years, but eventually circumcision is usually needed.
Preputioplasty is a lesser operation. It involves making a vertical incision in the foreskin and then stitching it crosswise to widen the opening; it usually leaves a very normal appearance.
Doctor :   May I know in which city do you stay ?
Doctor :   I would advise you to immediately visit a Urologist and get the treatment.
