We're here for you
Phimosis is when the top of the foreskin of the penis becomes progressively tighter and cannot be retracted over the head of the penis.
It occurs primarily in uncircumcised boys, but can occur in some boys that are circumcised as well. In some cases, it is related to repeated irritation of the penis and foreskin.
Many times, phimosis can be treated with a prescription strength steroid cream which allows the skin to soften over time. Phimosis can also be treated with circumcision or other similar procedures offered by your pediatric urologist.
We're here to help.
