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 am 55 years old and never had this problem until a year ago. I have seen 2 Urologist and they both say I do not see anything wrong I told them that my penis skin on shaft tears when getting and erection and sometimes it feels like it is over filling with blood. Like you blow up a balloon to normal then overfull it and it tears and takes about 3 days to stop hurting. I also notice that sometimes I will get this ring of tight skin that forms like a collar around the shaft near the rim of the penis and it hurts extremely to try to roll the skin down and most of the time it will not move but the pain is intense. At one time it would have red bumps on the rim on one side and felt like the erection was crooked and leaning to one side and over hard if that is possible. My regular doctor increased my blood pressure Medicine to see if lower my blood pressure would help. Not a chance. I can not find out what is causing the problem. It only does it when and erection occurs. I am circumcised but it also feels like after and erection is achieved there is no skin movement, for example if you try to masturbate and pull the skin back and forth there is none or very little movement and the rim gets very tight and hurts but the tearing is near the base and midway up the shaft. Someone please help because even when having a dream and getting and erection while I sleep I pay for that for 3 days of pure pain.

Starts with irritation at the penis foreskin for about 3-4days then 3 or 4 rush-like swellings (3-mm wide about 3mm apart) show in a group (in a line). After a about 2 days they become woulds so painful lasting over one week. I also have a growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin.

Seen Doctors:
Doctor 1 - Three Months ago:
Thinks it is a bacterial infection and treated with antibacterials, Symtoms disappeared. By then then the growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin was not there but other symptoms described were there.

Doctor 2: 3 weeks ago:
Thinks I have genital ulcers with herpes + Warts and gave me viral treatment. The wounds healed but I fealing the symptoms for irritation at the penis foreskin starting again (6days now). The penis and area around it now also itches.

My partner was also treated in both cases.

What should I do next?

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.

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....
