Phimosis is a disease of the Penis.
When the foreskin of the Penis becomes tight and fails to retract. Call it Phimosis. The foreskin tightly covers the Head of the Penis. It causes pain when you try to pull the skin back. The main cause is congenital. Other causes may be Injury, Infection or Inflammation. Phimosis interferes the urination and sexual intercourse. It causes poor blood circulation that may result in purple head of the Penis.
It is mainly congenital and common in babies. However, it may develop in old age also. The cause may be celibacy, infections or injury. As you grow old, the body becomes deficient in collagen. The Skin and the connective tissues, all over the body loose their elasticity. This goes for the penis too. The excessive shrinking of the foreskin due to lack of use, may cause Phimosis.
Is it necessary to spell out the remedy?

Types of Phimosis
Congenital Phimosis: It is also known as Physiologic Phimosis. It is present by birth. A little manipulation for a few days may resolve the issue. Some religions practicing circumcision take care of the problem before it occurs.

Acquired Phimosis It is a result of poor hygiene, Blantitis or recurrence of Infections. The forceful retraction of the tight foreskin may also develop Acquired Phimosis. It interferes with the sexual activities. It causes swelling of the head of the Penis and Urinary Tract Infection. Because daily cleaning is not possible, smegma may accumulate and cause further infections.

Causes of Phimosis
Poor Hygiene
Pus in the Penis
Chronic inflammation
Reoccurring Blantitis ( Inflammation of Glans of the Penis )

If not treated properly, Phimosis may cause
Infection of Kidneys

Differential Diagnosis : Paraphimosis is a condition when the foreskin is pulled back and it stuck there. It causes pain and poor blood circulation in the Penis. It causes swelling and inflammation also. The foreskin should go back to covering the glans. If not, it may cause further complications.

Dear Vasudev
You better try Mercurius solubilis 30, a Homeopathy remedy. Get only one dose that means only 2 granules and dilute them in a glass of water. Have one 1 tablespoon and throw rest of the medicine. Wait for 2 weeks and study your symptoms. You may share your all remaining symptoms in this page.

My son is about 4.5 years old, and the foreskin is covering the head.When he tries to pull it down, it reveals the head only about 1/4. The doctor when he was 3, said it is phimosis and and it is treated with cutting the foreskin.
Is there something else we can do? I do urge him to do the pulling but he doesn't do it often.
Thank you

I am 55years old. I am suffering from acute phemosis. I am diabetic but under medication.
Genetal part of the pennis is paining, and glans is swollen, very slow discharge of urine, and at times burning irritation. Theere is smegma accumulation between forskin & glans. Also bladder is not getting emptied because of slow discharge. It is also observed that if bladder does not emptied there is slight urine leakage. There is urge to urination, which doe n't control. This problem is there almost one and half year. Doctors suggest to go for circumsision, but I do not want to go for any surgical methods.

Pls suggest any medication to cure phemosis with other related problems.

My 18 months son has phimosis according to the urologist. He had a minor kidney infection last year. He prescribed some steroids cream. We saw some improvement but he stopped for a few days and the skin got tighter. We are not able to see the orifice. The pediatrician now prescribed another cream for a month. Yet my husband resists to circumcision (even though he is circumsized) to allow our son to make the decision when he grows up. I’m so stressed over this, and I suffer seeing the catheter they put in him, but, is there any remedy we can help him with? or is it better to circumsize?

The pediatrician says it’s best after 5 years old, unless he’s suffering more infections after this month passes by.

I got phimosis almost 5yrs back due to some infection but got cured [Used Syphilinum].. Again this year it affected me after having unprotected sex (using Jacaranda and syphilinum). Diabetes type 2. If Some better remedy please do suggest. Don't want to undergo any circumcision as it would hamper my sensitivity.

Hi All,

For the past 6 months i am facing this phimosis problem. But there is a beautiful remedy naturally. i tried it and its working out without surgery. But it is not a cure, it is a remedy only. Please boil lot of neem leaves in water and prepare the decoction. Then pour this decoction on your penis fore skin. This gives some elasticity. do this frequently atleast 5 or 6 times a day or every 2 hrs. within a day you will see improvements. pls try this and let me know and mail me about your improvements. I am able to experiment this because i currently live in a village and my village has lot of neem trees around. so i tried and it is working beautifully. try this and post your comments.
