DAD CHECKS SIMPLY
I am an Norwegian 45 years old male that as a child had a very narrow
phimoses, that was compleetely cured by gradually streching. When I
was 10 years old, my parents discovered the phimosis, which I actually
had had from my early childhood, and brought me to a doctor that recomanded
operation (circumcission or dorsal cleavage?).
Well, I got very angry, refused the operation, and actually showed
That I was prepared to fight violently to avoid it.
Then I was taken to another doctor (actually a surgeon that really
had some understanding of the problem). He recomanded that I gradually
streched my foreskin dayly in order to solve the problem. He called
my type of phimosis "soft".
That I did, and in three months the problem was completly solved.
Having my own experience in mind, I checked my sons penis for phimosis
on regular intervals when he was young, regularly pulling in back,
but without using force. I also instructed him to retract his foreskin
and wash his penis.
When he was 12 years old I had not done this for some time, but
thought it usefull to do it one more time. Then I discovered that his
foreskin had become inflamed and he was developing a phimotic condition
because of this. He had forgotten to pull his forskin back and wash
it for a long time.
Well, I then smeard the tip of his penis with an antibacterial cream
for some days, and pulled the foreskin gently back, some more each
day. In some days the condition was reversed. I reinstructed him to
pull back his foreskin every day and wash his penis.
Since then he has not had any problems.
My experiences has told me that it is important to check a boys
penis in regular interwals, at least antill one can be sure the boy
himself has developed a regular habit of doing this himself and was
My experience also tells me that a phimosis often is best treated
with very simple methods, that can be done at home, either by the boy
himself or a parent.
