Suggest treatment for phimosis

What do you recommend for the treatment of phimosis without circumcision? Are there any stretches?

I've read that Betamethasone 0.05% could help but am worried about the effect of steriods on my body, especially my testicles. Will there be side effects?

Yes, if there is phimosis without any infection and you don't have increased blood sugar, you can try stretching method and local steroid application.

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