Stretching and applying steroid cream on the inside is believed to thin out the preputial skin and one may be saved of as surgery.

Studies have shown that this is successful in around 70% of patients but in such studies children constitute the bulk. Success in adults is much lesser.

Before starting the stretching and application of steroid you need to see urologist and find out whether your skin can be stretched at all or not.

Thanks for reverting back.

It is good to hear that you don't have any problem with urination or masturbation. However, you can still have tear of the foreskin when you have intercourse.

More importantly, you are collecting smegma inside and this can lead recurrent infections for yourself as well as your partner.

Moreover, prolonged exposure to smegma has been shown to be carcinogenic and hence, you should certainly seek treatment for phimosis.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.
