Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

I am really glad that this board has plenty of information on phimosis and stretching. If i had found this info earlier, maybe i wouldnt be in the condition i am now.

But here is my problem. I am 19 years old, I kinda knew i had phimosis because my foreskin was tight and i couldnt pull it back all the way. I ended up with a girl 2 nights ago, and we attempted to have sex. Somewhere along the way i felt pain becuase of my tight foreskin and i stopped us from continuing. The next morning i realized that i had cut my foreskin because we had tried to hard. I probably should have been more careful, but i was pretty drunk that night, and that probably means i didnt feel the pain as much as i would have normally.

Now the cut is pretty wide and im afraid of the risk of infection. After all, i do urinate from there and im sure theres plenty of bacteria. If it was anywhere else i would even say its wide enough for stitches. I've done some reading on phimosis because i decided i needed to educate myself and solve this problem instead of hopin it will go away. I learned that cuts lead to scars which leads to MORE tightness which is the opposite of what i want. Another thing im afraid of is i don't want a circumcision.

About the severity of the phimosis, I had been able to retract my foreskin all the way when im flacid, but when im erect i cant get it all the way over the glans, mayb 1/2 way over teh glans when i pull, 3/4 if i pull really hard but that is painful. correct me if im wrong but i think i should be able to pull it back at least an inch down the shaft even past the glans to be "normal."

My question is what should i do? About the cut? about the phimosis? Should i go to a doctor? hospital? ER? I am in the US and i heard they may just suggest circumcision. About the phimosis? who would i go to to prescribe the steroid cream? Will stretching techniues work even after the cut is healed and scarred over? How can i ensure quickest recovery time? i kind of want to be able to have sex with my partner soon. Any suggestions would b really appreciated.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

If you wanted to have sex real soon, you should have started stretching a couple of months ago. You likely tore the frenulum. This will take as long as it will take to heal. There is no way to rush healing. No sex, no masturbation, until it is better, or it will just tear again.
Once you have that under control, follow the instructions on stretching in the sticky at the top of this forum. They are excellent, and have helped many guys.
Good luck.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

I don't think i tore the frenulum. I that is on the underside of the glans from what i know. I can see the cut, it's quite big on the part of the foreskin that is facing me when i look down. my question reall was if this cut (after healed) will effect the result of the stretching techniques, and if the cut is something i should go to a doctor for (risk of infection)? And should i go straight to a urologist to get the prescription for the steroid cream?

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

As for the sex, its not the biggest concern. I want my cut to be taken care of. And even before the stretching process is complete, i've read some posts where people have been able to have sex witha t ight foreskin with a condom and lubrication. Is there a specific technique or instruction on having sex without pain for ppl with phimosis?

You don't really have to worry about an infection. It is not a particularly infection prone part. Urine is sterile, anyway.
You can try with the foreskin forward, with a condom on.
It sounds to me like you have an adhesion, and that is what tore.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

Well, i just went to a urologist today to get it checked out.

He said if i was concerned with keeping the area clean i should use hydrogen peroxide after i urinate with a q-tip to clean around the area.

About the phimosis, as a US doctor would he went straight to circumcision. When i asked about a cream, he didn't really know about betamethasone but he did prescribe triamcinolone and said anything with the "-one" at the end was basically related all to cortizone. He said he'd rather try this cream becuase he has prescribed it to others before. He said its to help heal the cut AND to try to stretch the skin. He said it has some antifungal cream mixed in. I'm to apply it once in the morning and once at night.

Also, it would be about 10 days for the cut to heal. After that i can try the stretching. I brought a print out of the sticky on this board and he said he doesnt kno if it will work but if thats what i want to try then i can try it and come back to see him in a month.

I'll report back with any progress.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

I;m not clear on exactly what an adhesion is, but if it is skin being fused/not separated from the glans as i assume, then i don't have an adhesion.

I said i can pull the skin back all the way when im not erect, so that means there is no fused skin.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

On re-reading, you don't have an adhesion. I have never heard of anyone tearing the upper side of their foreskin. I am wondering. Is it supple, like regular skin, or is it tougher and a little leathery?
Betamethasone cream would thin the foreskin a bit.

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

yeah its just like normal skin... it probably has to do withthe angle at which the girl and i were engaged... from that angle.. the bottom was probably being pulled back more and that meant the top was being stretched against the glans... i see that as the most probable cause...

does anyone kno anything about the cream that was prescribed to me?

Re: Phimosis: My foreskin cut during rough foreplay

I don't know that particular cream but don't think it will be as active as the Betamethasone. I would have thought hydrogen peroxide would be a bit harsh on a foreskin but he's the doctor. Doctors who don't know about the action of Betamethasone tend to use a less active form of corticosteroid to avoid the side effects of te more active form. However in the skin stretching application you want the skin-thinning side effect because that's what helps the stretching.
That said I have heard of guys who have had a lot of improvement using a combination corticosteroid and fungicide cream. So let it heal up, try the stretching with it and if it doesn't work then demand the Betamethasone.
It is amazing that a urologist has not even heard of the use of Betamethasone for stretching. He could at least do a web search. Just shows what we say about US urologists and foreskins is true.
