Brief Answer:
therapeutic circumcision it is

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Circumcision has its benefits.hygiene and no complications like this are some of them.
What you are having is called prepucial adhesion secondary to phimosis and paraphimosos. All the conservative approaches like topical antibiotics and blah blah yata yata yata are just temporary silencing of issue and it recurr after some time. Also this leads to penile malignancies if recurrent and odds are increased.
Let me give you a simple and one step solution.
Get a circumcision. Therapeutic circumcision is the treatment modality of choice for such issues. There is no shame in it.and it will fix a lot of issues.
As they say it is never too late for a therapeutic circumcision.
I hope it helps. Seek a urologist or a plastic surgeon and let them take care of this 5 minutes procedure and spare you alot of trouble.
Take good care of yourself and think about it and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

I am 31 years old and married for last 2 years. I am having phimosis. I have consulted physicians and they suggested surgery. But I was not very interested as I had never any problem with that and I wanted to avoid surgery. But recently I am feeling decline in sexual urge. It may be due to my job pressure as well, which has also contributed continuous back pain. I would also like to mention that I used to masturbate a lot. I am not sure if that has got any evil effect on me.

Please suggest on my problem.

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

Frenulum Breve and treatment
I'm fifteen and my frenulum/ banjp string is short, I remember tearing it awhile back
. I could not forget that much pain. I went to my doctor after it naturally healed and now as I get a erection it hurts and is causing discomfort. especially if i trrty to pull the foreskin back also if I try and lay it out flat when flaccid it bends and this ia concerning me greatly, my doctor said to wait till I was sixteen and that's in less then half a year. I have been researching some treatments like frenulumplasty and stretching and circumcision, I am wanting a referral to a urologist/specialist to see their opinion but I don't know if shell give me it, so will I have to wait a few more months or can I get it now since I've been waiting for over a year! and what treatments are available. can I chose a procedure such as frenulumplasty or circumcision first? or will I have to do stretching exercises? I highly doubt the exercises will work considering it broke before and I had to let it naturally health since I was to embarrassed to tell anyone... I need answers...

how long must I wait for a referral?
how do I ask for one?
and what will the specialist likely do first? exercises then surgury or can I chose surgury straight of the bat and pick which one I want and need??
