  • Tight foreskin, phimosis need help

    Hi, I would really appreciate if any doctor could clear up my concern.
    I am sure that I have phimosis, I can pull back the foreskin when my penile is not erected. But the blood can't discharge well, I think the skin is too tight that clap the head, the head turns into purple (I think the foreskin is tight and the blood can't flow back). And I only can pull the skin back halfway to the head during erection.

    I just talked to my doctor today and he just told me that I don't have to worry about it much; I just need to wash any visible part I could for hygiene. The smegma on around the head is fine. Is this true?
    Plus he gave me a lotion called "betamethasone dipropionate" from TARO, he claims that this would help the skin lose the tightness a bit and easier to pull it back. It said I have to apply it twice a day. Is this true as well? I checked on google, seems like this lotion is for infection or inflammation. But I am fine, there's no itchy or hurt nor pain. Basically, he just saying the lotion is for lose the skin.

    Please help me to clear my confusion. Kind regards.
