Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

You seem to be having either tight foreskin or tight freulum.
In either of the cases, you may need to get operated for the same.
However, you can try local application of flucort ointment for 2 weeks and let me know of the effects.

Pull the skin back and apply the flucort ointment, then take the skin back to its normal position.
Do this twice a day for two weeks and let me know how the things are.

Sincerely

Doctor..

Thanks for the prompt response. Few followup queries more:

- The idea of getting it operated kind of scares me. Just wanted to know if this is a rare/serious problem or it is common problem.
- In the current situation will i have any issues after marriage?

Regards
doctor

Hi XXXXXXX

It is a pretty common problem. On an average I see 20-25 such patients
in a month and only 1-2 people need to undergo surgery.
Rest all see marked improvement with medications I have suggested.

I do not see this to be hindering your married life. With correct treatment everything is expected to be normal.

However, if you don't improve you should undergo surgery rather than have any mishaps
at later date.

For Urologists:



Like two weeks ago I was experimenting some pain when having sex with my girlfriend, I didn't put attention, as the pain was soft, well, actually the pain was when trying to penetrate her the first time, after that all was good. WE had sex this week, last Tuesday to be sure and the pain was stronger. In the night when I was in the shower I noticed that the top of the foreskin was a little red and swollen (The pennis was erectus at that time) and I try to pull back the foreskin and I felt pain, then I looked a detail and I saw some little cuts on the top of the foreskin, they were minimal, almost visible, I washed whole pennis and when the water was falling it actually hurst even more, like any other cut on the body. I searched and searched the web to found a reason before to go to doctor and my conclusion it was that I have some kind of phimosis, I don't know why, this had never happened to me before. Now the pennis is fine, actually I try to avoid any erection on the day, which is almost impossible but I saw that the cuts gone, but I'm worry that when having sex again they appear. Any advice to know if I will heal quickly, or I have to do something else? Is this serious?

Thanks,

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

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....
