Brief Answer: Apply moisturizer and wait... Detailed Answer: Hi, You seem to be developing frequent cuts / tears on the foreskin. In the absence of redness, itching and any other symptoms, I believe there is no signs of inflammation. In this circumstance, I suggest you not to handle the affected area. Apply a thin layer of regular moisturizer over it and keep the region clean. Watch the symptoms progress. Itching, more random breaks, redness or any other symptoms develops over the next few days need to be reported to the doctor. Usually the pain and cuts go away in a few days. If the cuts persist, you need to get your blood sugar checked. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

Hello Doctor. I am 21 years old. I cannot retract my foreskin completely because there is a small joint with the penis. Because of this incomplete retraction I think I have a little pain during intercourse whenever I try to push it fully inside. There are no issues related to urination. Is this phimosis, and if yes what should I do ? Is circumcision the only option ?

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
