Tight foreskin (Phimosis)
What is tight foreskin?
Tight foreskin or phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin may become too tight and be unable to be retracted. Conditions that can cause phimosis are infection, inflammation, or scarring from an underling condition
The treatment of the phimosis depends on its cause and severity. In some cases, no treatment is necessary. But if a tight foreskin causes symptoms then steroid creams can be used for few days and if they aren’t effective surgical management should be considered (Circumcision).
