My son, 5 years old, has been diagnosed as having Paraphimosis. He has been given a steroid cream and told to return to the GP if it worsens or has not returned to normal after two week s. My question though is should he be resting and avoiding things like sand pits etc. that could come in contact with his penis and agravate the paraphimosis? Can he still go to school?
Hi, Having paraphimosis it is advisable to bring foreskin on glans as if it does not come to glans it might cause tight ring formation at glans and shaft junction producing swelling of glans and might create problem. Consult surgeon and get foreskin coming back on glans. Ok and take care.
