Hello,

Betamethasone can provide symptomatic relief only. You can apply anesthetic creams like lignocaine and gently move the foreskin multiple times. If phimosis persists, surgical correction like circumcision may be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
