Question: Hello! I am suffering from tight foreskin. I am unable to pull the foreskin over the glans even in flaccid condition. I have searched over the internet and at many websites it is suggested to do stretching with Betamethasone cream. Is it safe to apply that cream? Could you please suggest some creams available in market that can be used? Also, how to use the cream? Does Beclomethasone also serves the same purpose? Once I get the cream, how to go ahead with stretching?

Brief Answer: It is advisable not to do strecing of foreskin. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have congenital Phimosis and want to strech foreskin by using some cream. Please note that the Phimosis that you have is congenital in origin and can not corrected by stretching permanently.over stretching of the foreskin causes injury to foreskin every time you attempt to stretch it, resulting into scarring and thereby thickening of foreskin. The only proper treatment for Phimosis is to get circumcised .The surgery is very simple and carried out by General Surgeon under local anaesthesia as a day care surgery and offers permanent cure. Please consult qualified surgeon foe clinical examination and get circumcised so that you can have enjoyable sexual life in future. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you . Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.

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.

I'm 19 yrs old..& NOT circumcised. Wednesday nigh my girlfriend was giving me oral sex & I started to bleed A LOT! I was very afraid. I went to the hospital that night & all they said was that I had 2 lacerations on my penis.I was bleeding up until I got onto the room bed in the hospital.I think I snapped the frenulum. I'm not too sure at all. I feel no pain or anything like that. The doctors sent me home & said that all I needed to do was apply neosporin & stuff like that for about a week and also abstain from sex for a week or 2. I want a better outlook on this matter because I don't know what to do. Can you help? Also there is a tiny black scab right under the urine slit. It doesn't burn or anything I just want to know how I should remove it & when I can resume sexual activity.

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....
