Im 15 years old and have a question.
I never was able to retract my foreskin but after about a month of stretching I got it to go back with ease and now it goes back when flacid and erect. But it can't go over the head of my penis, not that its to tight but my foreskin is glued all the way around the head. Like its sealed and glued together the foreskin and the head.
Were my glans are its come away a bit so I have like a bit off my head how it should be and the rest is still glued on all the way around. Its annoying and I don't know wether it will go or not.
Iv tried rubbing it off with water, mild soap but its quite painful and it doesn't budge. Iv been doing some research and it says it should un-glue before puberty. So I need some help?
Welcome to A2A, ajb1401. Indeed at birth the foreskin is attached to the glans, and the two separate later - usually before puberty but sometimes not until puberty. Sometimes there are adhesions that don't separate naturally, and to separate them may need minor surgery under local anaesthetic. Sometimes small adhesions cause no great problem and can be left as they are.
It may help to rub a little oil in each day - cooking oil will do - the rubbing with oil can help with the separation.
I'm assuming this is on the outer rim of the head, but it's not quite clear from your description. It would be a good idea to show it to a doctor - since you are in the UK the doctor should be quite familiar with foreskins and be able to give better advice from having seen it.
Thanks for response
Ill try to describe better, when I pull back the foreskin it goes all the way back so its like on the rim of the head about to pass over the ridge but then it stops. Can't go any futher because the skin is slightly glue to the head all the way around. When i try to separate there is like small white balls and they dissolve in the water, smegma i believe. But like I said one bit isnt and looks the way it should and is free and not attached to the head.
I searched it up on here and one person said it can take till the end of puberty and comes off on its own. Im not sure I have just been worried for quite along time now. It doesnt hurt when i retract forekin its fine just it stops and then can't go over the ridge. I don't really want an op.
As an adolescent, the uncircumcised male should retract, or pull back, the foreskin and clean underneath it daily. It should be a part of his daily hygiene routine. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states that the foreskin should be cleansed by following the steps below:
* Gently, not forcefully, pull the foreskin away from the tip of the penis.
* Rinse the tip of the penis and the inside part of the foreskin with soap and water.
* Return the foreskin back over the tip of the penis.
Always consult your adolescent's physician for more information.

What? I know how to wash my penis iv never been able to pull it over the ridge of the head becuase it is adhered.
OK, Seeing a Doctor is the BEST option for a check up...He knows best (concerning your problem medically):)
Don't worry, you're not alone, Dude
Ok im going to try and see if i can do it over say a month or two myslef first because its not causing pain or anything. Iv put oil on and am going to leave it to soak in for a while.
What can the doctors do, op?, cream?
Creammmmm??? Dude...you said: my foreskin is glued all the way around the head. Like its sealed and glued together the foreskin and the head.
I understand that you're problem really need a Doctor
If you feel you could try to do it by yourself with oil/cream then GO for it! But if Problem persist, consult a Doctor:)
I'm a Nurse in Operating and Delivery...It's a common problem.
There are some methods that the Physician could give you...just be open. Anyway, you're still the one who will gain after all:)
Ill get it checked out. Thanks for all your help so far.
If i had a small op there would be local anesthetic right? I hope so.
Going to the doctor is a bit extreme considering he just started retracting..
Use baby oil to help with the separation and gently sdtrtch and work the adhesions daily. Don't force anything.
Yeh, my foreskin is loose just adhered to the head like kind of fused together. Ill sit it out for a bit and try to ease it away. But if it persists ill get it checked out.
Some bits are fin and they came undone when I started retracting when I was like 13. Yes i know a little late but I did it when I was younger then negleted it stupidly when I was like 9/10.
Uhhhhhhh it depends upon how the Doctor will see your situation, but mostly He will always give you some options. Topical/injectable anaesthetic agent is applied depending on the location.
Don't worry about the OP, it's just like a bite of a mosquito after 2 days you'll gonna have a TOTAL relief from your problem ...
So me trying to remedy it myself is pointless?
Listen im getting confused, some are telling me a simple op is needed and some are telling me keep trying.
sdp: Going to the doctor is a bit extreme considering he just started retracting..
Should he suffers in that problem for the whole year...knowing that there's a shortcut way to gain a lifetime relief after 2 days from consulting a Doctor...(???) SIGH
Don't have any contact with my dad but I have an older brother.
I havent tried to seperate it before, only breifly.
OK OK OK Don't be confused;) YOU are the ONE who knows BEST of your situation...I wished I could see it(burp)...(excuse me) Like I said, if you can do a TRY by your own so GO for IT! But if you think that you CAN"T then SEEING A DOCTOR IS YOUR LAST OPTION:)
Yeh i understand ill give it a try over the next month or so and if I don't get any progress ill go to docs. Thanks again
Whats oil ment to do?
Yeh i suppose, iv seen some pictures of adhesion and it is like stuck up in some places then down. Mine just goes all the way around in a straight line right on the rim of the head.
