Hi Saurya, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You are having Phimosis where you will have scars and wont be able to retract the foreskin. Since you have consulted a Urologist, may be you can try Pulling it slowly and gradually after applying a heat pad. Do it twice or thrice daily and apply Fucidin Ointment regularly. Try it for a week, if it is not helping, may be you can opt for Circumcision. Do not pull it forcefully.

Good Luck.

hi I have a problem when my penis gets erect, it splits the skin just behind the head nearly every time. I am not circumcised and it seems that i have a tight ring of skin around the shaft thaat splits. I would be most grateful if you have any thoughts on this thank you.

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....
