Hi.I'm a 21 year old male. About a year ago I fully realised I have some serious problems with my foreskin. I've never been able to retract it. I feel and smell that there is a lot of smegma there and I can't remove it. I'm afraid to go to the doctor out of shame because of the smell and my condition.I also worry about the bad effects this buildup of smegma may have had on my penis.Anyone else with similar problems or advice?Thanks in advance.
you need to start stretching and opening the hole of your foreskin so that it can be pulled back behind the glands. There are many threads on how to do this in this section just read. You will also find that there are many people who have the same problem with you and it can be "fixed". Good Luck :wink:
Hey bud, welcome! No need to go to the doc at all, you've just got a bit of "work" to do with that foreskin of yours. First, you can stretch it so that it will retract while you're flaccid and erect...there are lots of threads on here about how best to stretch, if you need more help just ask. As for the smegma, that too can be removed. Can you get your finger inside the foreskin between it and the head of your penis at all? If so, then you'll probably be able to work at it some...I'd suggest taking a hot/soaking bath and try to work with it there, this makes your foreskin easier to stretch a bit. Also, a bit of an oil base lube will help loosen it some, baby oil works great for this. You may have to wait until you're able to retract some to really get that out of there, that isn't a problem at all. Take your time and be patient. Good luck, let me know if you need more help.
