    Question regarding foreskin
    jps89 posted:

    I thought I had posted a few days ago but it apparently disappeared so if you all are seeing this twice then sorry. I posted about a year ago about what to do with a relatively tight foreskin. It is retractable but uncomfortably tight when erect. Someone suggested using some type of cream to help stretch it but I have forgotten what type was recommended. Any advice?

    rest2010 responded:
    Gently retracting the foreskin once a day will loosen the skin over time. Use a moisturizer, and try retracting before erection occurs to reduce tearing. Use an antibiotic ointment should any tearing occur, and wait until it heals before continuing.
