I am 23 years old and I have a steady girlfriend since the last 2 years and we have been having regularly having sex. But since the last three months i have noticed that my foreskin has thickened causing the opening end of the foreskin to shrink in size. Because of this, I am not able to pull my foreskin back. So when I have intercourse i usually get a minute cut in the inside of my foreskin which causes pain. I met a couple of doctors, one of them ( a surgeon) said that Il need circumcision. but a dermatologist said that I can use HHZole cream on the thickened part of the foreskin. My question is that the thickened part is situated in the inside of the foreskin so to apply the ointment i have to roll the skin back as much as i can. And after I am done applying, I roll it down to its normal position (over the glans) which causes the cream to come in contact with my glans.
Is the cream unsafe for glans? because the cream is said to be used for external use only.

I am 14 (almost 15) and I'm almost sure I have phimosis. I can't retract the skin at all while having an erection and I can see only a part of my head (it's kind of purple). It hurts when I try to touch it and leavens an unpleasant feeling. Another problem is that my penis is small - 10 cm (I'm not worried about it I've read that there are still 3-4 years for it to grow ) and because of that I'm feeling too ashamed to tell my parents or consult a doctor. Is there a posibility for me to wait a couple of more years (hopefully my penis will grow during that time) and if it does tell my parents and consult a doctor or should I try something at home like stretching etc. (I can retract the skin while taking a shower but when I try to wash the head it is quite painfull for a couple of seconds and leaves an unpleasent feeling for another 1-2 minutes). (Sorry for this being so long).

y uncircumcised 11 year old son has had pain in his genital area for 4 days. He is not running a fever and no pain during urination. His dad thinks maybe he needs to be pulling the foreskin back further, because he can not pull it back very far. Could he have some irritation under the foreskin causing the pain?
