Hello,
Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Your foreskin is tight due to that it fold behind glans. Condition of having tight foreskin of penis called as phimosis. Tight foreskin lead to sexual dysfunction in form of erectile dysfunction or pain during erection. Although most of the person able to perform masturbation comfortably even with this problem. In most of the cases circumcision is required.

In conservative approach stretching exercise is helpful in mild cases:
-Stretching exercise: In this foreskin is manually stretched 2-3 times per day with mild force to widen its opening, so that it can slide freely over penis during erection. It is used only for mild phimosis and take several months to show improvement.

But Circumcision is best treatment option. Circumcision can be done at any age, even at your age too. It is very safe and easy procedure (take less then 5 Minute). You will have to wait only 1-2 week for sex after circumcision.

Wish you good health.
Regards.

Hello again,
Thanks for follow up.

Stretching method: You can either grab each side of the foreskin opening (with the foreskin forward) and gently pull on each side of the opening or, even better, insert the ends of two fingers, even the little fingers and pull them gently apart. Stretch the opening in this way until it feels uncomfortably stretched but not actually painful. Once again this is best done after soaking in a warm bath.

You can use Vaseline for lubrication.

Sir,

Surely, I will try stretching technique. As you told me circumcision is the only way to get rid of this problem. So I want to know suitable doctor/hospital and total expenditure for circumcision. Is it totally safe and can I have normal sex life after circumcision ?

Kindly provide me suggestion, I am totally disappointed with my foreskin problem.

Circumcision is best treatment option. Circumcision can be done at any age. It is very safe and easy procedure (take less than 5 Minute) done in local anesthesia. You will have to wait only 1-2 week for sex after circumcision.

Cost is vary from 2-6 thousand. You can get it done from any general or plastic surgeon. So, do not get frustrated and get it done.

I am circumcised, my penis started itching a lot the last two months. I scratched it a lot and it became swollen and red. A couple of days later, it became very dry and the skin was sort of peeling off. So I peeled the skin and in some rare cases I cut myself. But it's cool. I tried anti-fungal cream and it didn't work, also tried baby powder, did not work. 1 month later i go to visit a dermatologist. He said I have an allergy and prescribed Eodine 2% to put morning and night and 1 pill of AERIUS. Took the treatment for a week and did not work. Last week I decided to do the treatment again, also failed. My penis is scratching now with a sticky fluid on it below the head on the left side of the skin (If I'm looking down.) I am sexually active, but during the second treatment I didn't have intercourse. So, What the hell is up? - Thanks.

Sir

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise

This past summer I had a white patch of skin under the top part of my penis tip. It was milky in color and looked like dry skin. It did not hurt at all. A week later I had the urge to urinate and a slight tingling after I urinated. I went to the clinic and the doctor told me that I had a large amount of protein in my system which had most likely caused an infection. She told me the white patch looked like a friction rub. I had been masturbating a lot.
I met a girl in September and we are still together now. We had unprotected sex in October in November the symptom came back there was a tiny bump on the shaft of my penis with no pain and it again bothered me when I urinated. I went to the Dr. to get a full blood work. Everything came back negative except for Herpes 1.
Its now Feb and I see another pimple like bump on my circumcision line. It does not hurt but looks very pale. It is close to where the first abrasion was located (this are is now darker). I have been paranoid and been putting ointments and rubbing alcohol on my penis to get rid of any germs. Again the bumps never hurt, never flake or fill up with puss like a typical cold sore that I've had years ago on my lip.
Could this been a skin issue due to my girlfriends vaginal fluid (she just went on the pill), hygiene ( i work out 5 days a week), or an STD that hasnt shown up. I have also never seen any discharge from my penis. It takes several weeks for it to go away and normally there is just one.

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....
