Finding a good doctor

Hello,

I have posted on here before asking advice about a mild case of phimosis, if I'm spelling. I'm getting married soon so I've been trying to get it figured out. From my research, I've found out that you can often stretch it, possibly with the help of a steroid cream.

So, I bought some hydrocortisone and tried stretching it with that, but I didn't do it very consistently and thought it wasn't very powerful probably, so I went to see a doctor.

Here's the problem. He had NEVER HEARD OF STRETCHING it. He simply said circumcision was the way to treat it. I told him about using a steroid and he said in 30 years he'd never heard of it. He said I could try it, so he gave me a prescription of.... exactly the same thing, hyrdocortizone 1%.

So my question is, will this help, or is it a fruitless endeavor? Suppose I spend 15 minutes per evening trying to stretch it-- will I see any results?

If not, how can I find a doctor that knows about options other than circumcision? I really don't want to go that drastic route.


Thanks! I should say I'm a 21 year old virgin.

Go to a Urologist. If you don't have a GP who can refer you call the medical association in the county in which you live - or it could be the state. And ask for a referral.
