Management Of Phimosis In Circumcised Adults?
Hello, I want to ask, but first I want to explain my condition. I am 24 years old, and have had phimosis for more than one year. I had circumcised when I was 14 years old. Before I experienced this phimosis, I did not have any complaints with my penis. One day, my foreskin penis felt a little harder to pull back than usual, and this condition continued until my foreskin hole became smaller and now it is very difficult to pull back and cannot be pulled completely at all.
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Phimosis is a condition where the tip of the foreskin is narrowed and the elasticity cannot stretch optimally so that the tip of the foreskin cannot pass through the head of the penis when pulled back or when erect. This condition occurs in boys who have not been circumcised, so that after circumcision, phimosis will be cut off, and the remaining foreskin can be elastic when the penis is erect.
Abnormalities or complaints related to foreskin or foreskin as an adult or after circumcision, you should consult directly with a family doctor or surgeon. The doctor will do a direct examination of the penis area related to patient complaints, both with care to the act of cutting foreskin re-if necessary .
In connection with your question, the presence of phimosis complaints after a history of circumcision 10 years ago, should not occur again, because the tip of the foreskin has been circumcised which results in the remaining foreskin skin being pulled back behind the glans penis. Therefore, it is necessary to do a direct examination and need to ensure the definition of phimosis after circumcision that you experience with the possibility of other abnormalities in foreskin.
However, even if you think this complaint is a phimosis, then the possibility of this condition is due to the remaining foreskin is too long, so it still covers part of the glans penis. So that when you urinate, the remaining dirt from the urine causes the inner layer of the foreskin to stick to the glanspenis and cause adhesions. However, back again, this should be done a consultation and examination directly to the doctor, without a direct examination you will not know the cause and treatment planned by the doctor. Secondly, the doctor will ascertain the cause of this complaint, so that the doctor can plan the treatment needed. If your doctor suggests cutting some of the foreskin again, then you should continue the plan of the doctor who treats you.
As such, I cannot recommend any treatment until you see your doctor.
