    Adult with phimosis

    So I'm in my mid twenties, my whole life I've been unable to use condoms during sex. My foreskin covers my whole glans and I'm unable to pull it back when my penis is erect, I'm aware this is called phimosis.

    I've been to the doctor and he almost immediately signed me up for circumcision, but I told him I wanted to test my options first, so I asked him to prescribe me a steroid cream, because maybe I could fix this "manually". He gave me Elocon, he told me to apply it once a day for 3 weeks, I did it for 2 weeks including stretches 20min per day, and it hasn't changed at all. I can feel the skin around the whole glans has loosened up a bit, but the "ring" at the end of my penis is still just as tight, there is no way to pull it back at all.

    I've looked at youtube videos and read some articles here and there about circumcision, but there's always an agenda behind it, either they are trying to force it on people or they are saying by being circumcised your penis will look like a chewed up piece of gum and you'll lose a lot of sensitivity including the frenulum.

    I want to ask for other options, maybe even an appointment with a urologist (I've been to a general doctor), because I want surgery to be my very last option, however I am pretty tired of this and I am growing impatient. I'd like to know if there are any other options, other than steroid creams or circumcision that I could consider.

    And also, is it really true that circumcising your penis will cause it to look "dried up"?

    Sincerely thank you in advance

    Have you considered a simple dorsal slit rather than circumcision?

    Hi Try this for stretching, using some baby or coconut oil and massaging this into your foreskin, then you take a pinch of skin on both sides between your first finger and thumb you pull outwards and sideways at the same time hold and release and do that for a good 5 minutes 3 to 4 times a day and slowly it should get back over your erect penis, but do keep at till it does.

    A lot of this happening is because you did not play with your penis as a young boy.

    But please no circumcision, having it done takes away a lot of nerve endings, these give you so many feelings, just keep the stretching going.

    I agree with both the other posters. ANYTHING is better than a circumcision!

    Do some foreskin stretching exercises once a day and things will loosen up nicely down there…. just find some good ones online and do them every day. And it’s a good move to use a penis health crème with Vitamin E to not only protect your penis skin from irritation but to speed up the process.. moisturization is key here. You can get a crème (Man1 Man Oil is a good one) online… good luck.

        Welcome to the world of CC the snake oil salesman, notice two things he never says the price, its $ 40 a pop, and he never says how much you get, its just 4 oz's, so that's $10 an oz, need we say more on the super salesman.
