What to do if your foreskin gets stuck

If your foreskin is stuck or not retracting comfortably, it's essential to address this concern promptly. It's not uncommon for some men to experience issues with a tight or non-retractable foreskin, a condition known as phimosis.

Here are some steps you can consider:

1- Gentle Retraction: If the foreskin is stuck, try to retract it gently during a warm bath or shower when the skin is more relaxed. Avoid forcing it, as this can cause injury.

2- Coconut Oil: You can use oil for lubrication and gently try to retract the foreskin.

Consult a Doctor: If the foreskin remains stuck, causes pain, or you're unable to retract it, it's crucial to see a healthcare professional. Sexologist Dr. Sudhir Bhola can help you for paraphimoisis and phimosis without the need of surgery in most cases.

It's crucial to address this issue promptly to prevent complications such as infections, paraphimosis (where the retracted foreskin cannot return to its original position), or other problems related to the tight foreskin.

Please seek medical advice for a proper assessment and treatment plan based on your specific situation. Avoid attempting any extreme measures without professional guidance, as this can lead to further complications or injuries.
