Phimosis stretching at home

The problem of Phimosis is where there’s an inability to retract the foreskin over the glans (head) of your penis. Paraphimosis is the entrapment of the retracted foreskin below the head of your penis. In the largest part of cases the tight foreskins which result in the above conditions could be loosened sufficiently after a couple of weeks of persistent foreskin stretching. Eventually this stretching process will encourage the development of new skin cells, that will enable normal retraction. This phimosis therapy is essentially the most practical and logical first step to coping with the problem.

1. Ridged band stretch: Insert your two index fingers at the inner sides of the foreskin opening and start to pull them gently apart. Gently apply as much tension so the stretch feels mildly uncomfortable though not painful. Hold in this particular position for 30 to 60 seconds, then relax for some seconds before repeating. Keep this up (no pun intended) for as much as fifteen minutes and do it twice a day. Ideally try this after soaking in a warm bath. After being performed persistently this exercise will assist to avoid Paraphimosis which is where the retracted foreskin gets trapped below the glans of the penis which is often both painful and distressing. Should this happen attempt to ease the foreskin forward however, when after several attempts you don’t find a way to bring the foreskin back over the glans then seek medical assistance.

2. The withdraw stretch: If the foreskin is extremely tight and getting two fingers into the opening of the foreskin is not really yet feasible then the easiest first approach would be to withdraw on the skin on the shaft of the penis so the foreskin opening feels stretched but without pain. Retain the stretched position for some minutes and after that relax. Again continue doing this process for about 15 minutes once or twice on a daily basis. Using this method works better if performed with an erection.

Following persistent stretching over a few weeks the opening will get bigger and arrive to the point where it could almost fit over the rim of your penis glans when erect. At this stage be sure to avoid trapping the foreskin behind the glans (Paraphimosis) when it becomes loose enough to take place but tight enough to be hard to bring forward again. Instead begin working onthe first ridge band exercise described above. In both of the above approaches if the foreskin opening becomes sore or small splits develop it is best to stop and let things heal.

You will notice that as you expose more of the glans of the penis through these exercises that it is super sensitive and also a little painful to touch. Gradually this over sensitivity will pass as you continue your exercises. Try gently placing the glans under flowing water from a the tap or the shower to reduce sensitivity. Should you slowly continue using this process it is actually highly likely you will notice results after a few weeks, stop too quickly however and most likely things will just firm up again.

You will also be able to ask your doctor to prescribe Betamethasone 1% gel. A small amount of this ointment can be applied to the tight area of the foreskin. It’ll accelerate the stretching process but won’t do anything whatsoever by itself, without stretching. Stretching will still work without the ointment, just more slowly.
