A condition in which tight foreskin can't be pulled back over the head of the penis.
Phimosis is a condition of the male foreskin where the skin is tight and unable to retract back behind the head of the penis. This condition is completely normal and physiologic in most baby boys whose penis is otherwise without abnormalities.
Risks Associated With Phimosis?
There is a higher risk of urinary infection during the first year of life in uncircumcised boys as compared to those who are circumcised, but the overall risk is relatively low. If a child develops symptoms from phimosis or the foreskin cannot be retracted comfortably for routine hygiene by elementary school age, then medical or surgical treatment may become necessary.
Other issues such as skin infection or sexually-transmitted diseases in adulthood may be more common in uncircumcised individuals. This is usually due to lack of attention to genital hygiene and not necessarily due to the presence of an intact foreskin.
Signs and Symptoms:
The main symptom of phimosis is the inability to retract the foreskin. However, a tightened foreskin does not always cause symptoms. If phimosis does not cause symptoms, it is usually not considered serious and may not require treatment.
Possible phimosis symptoms are:
- Difficulty urinating
- Painful intercourse
- Lack of sensation
Combined with poor hygiene, phimosis can also lead to inflammation of the penis and foreskin. Inflammation of the penis is called balanitis. Inflammation of both the penis and the foreskin is called balanoposthitis.
What Treatments are Available for Phimosis if Needed?
In approximately 70 to 80 percent of individuals, a course of prescription, ayurveda lotions and herbs applied to the tight foreskin along with gradual manual retraction of the foreskin over the course of weeks to a few months can be very effective for medical treatment of phimosis.
Treatment of phimosis in Ayurveda is very effective and has no side effects. The circumcision removes the foreskin permanently.
Treatment for a tightened foreskin depends on the specific cause and symptoms of your condition. In some cases, there is no infection or other disease causing phimosis and the tightened foreskin is a naturally occurring development. There are several treatment options and recommendations available.
Phimosis treatment may include:
- Daily hygiene: Clean your penis daily with lukewarm water and gently dry it. Avoid using shampoo or bubble bath products on your penis or foreskin. After urinating, remember to dry under your foreskin.
- Topical lotions and ointments: Doctor may prescribe a steroid cream or other ointment to reduce inflammation and irritation. This is sometimes referred to as phimosis medication.
