Dear Saurya,thanks for posting your query.As per the details it seems that you are having tight foreskin.So your doctor has rightly advised to retract and clean the area.The area beneath the foreskin if not cleaned can lead to infection and other problems.You can apply any moisturizer on skin where it stretches.Fusidin is local antibiotic given for infection.If this does not solve the problem then you may need surgery for removal of foreskin,that is circumcision.Bye and take care.

Hi Doctor, My foreskin is very tight that it won t even retract a bit after trying hard. Not even on the head. Does this prevent from having kids? (I mean does this prevent pregnency to my partner?) I can not go for circumcision for next 6 to 8 months due to some personal reasons. But later which I want to go for it. Please tell me how much does this cost in INR? Suggest me some good hospital in bangalore for circumcision. Please reply. Thanks. sarat

I am 22 yrs old. My foreskin doesnt retract over glans. If i do it forcefully, i am able to stretch it till half of the glans, when i leave it, returns back to the tip of glans. Is it normal? Will this affect me later in life during intercourse? Please help me. My friend had tje same things. He did circumcision. Is there any need need to do it? Dont we have any non surgical methods? Should i forcefully stretch it?

I'm an 18-year-old male, not sexually active, virgin. I have good hygiene, shower at least 3 times a week. But I suspect I have some sort of penis infection. There is no pain or itchiness, but only those microscopic bumps at the edge of my penis's head, which worry me. They're mainly on top, but I have a little on the bottom as well. I'm also uncircumcised. Can you please help me what to do?
