Hi, My name's Rakesh. I'm 33 years old, married and have 2 year-old kid. My problem is with phimosis = tight foreskin. I'm a Hindu and never had a circumcision (as a young kid, I wish I had). Due to tight foreskin, on full erection, my glans penis is exposed only half-way. So far, I've have no problem urinating nor ejaculating. But I fear something called para-phimosis which I believe is a medical emergency. I think I'm the right candidate who'll end up with this. Let me explain this in detail. In non-erectile condition, my skin can be retracted and with little difficulty behind the bulb/glans, but it does get stuck behind the ridge. With some difficulty (that too with ample lubrication like warm water or oil) I can push my foreskin back over the glans, as it gets stuck behing the ridge. My foreskin opening is limited. I'm afraid of para-phimosis during coitus with my wife. Twice, during half erection my foreskin got pulled behind the glans and with difficulty I pushed it forward. I know "Circumcision" is the most adviced. But I have these fears: 1) Due to circumcision in older adults, the most sensuous nerves in the part called frenulum is severed and hence men after such older-age circumcision lost erectile functions considerably. 2) Due to non-exposure of glans, it has become quite sensitive. The mere touch of external object like my hand and brush of a harder fabric underwear gives me pain. So my actual question is : 1) What are the alternatives to circumcision to expand my foreskin. I hate to go under the scalpel. I heard some ointments like corticosteroids help a great deal as a non-surgical cure for phimosis. Please suggest some brand name available in India. I stay in Bangalore. 2) How to make the over-sensitive glans a little tough, so that contact with my hand, or my wife's vagina is not painful?? Any ointments there??
