Default Phimosis

I am a 21 year old male with phimosis. I've had it all my life, and only learned about it around 2 years ago, and I'm terrified to get it fixed. I've heard about what can happen to guys who don't clean under the foreskin even after a week or so, so I can imagine what it must be like after 21 years of not being able to clean it. I'm just so scared of what's under there, I'm afraid it's going to look worse than it does now. I even tried to find pictures of what it looks like after the phimosis is fixed, and it looked like a diseased popcorn.

Is there any guy out there who had phimosis as long as I have and got it fixed, and if so what was it like under there? Was it easy to clean afterwards, if at all possible?

I have little knowledge of phimosis; i'm doubting an active person here has it and can relate. I suggest you see your doctor as soon as possible, they'll explain everything to you. I can imagine it may be 'dirty', but i can also tell that cleaning it would just be part of fixing the retraction.

How should phimosis be treated?

Sorry to hear Zos. I'm below average, and not thick. I don't care if there's the odd girl who doesn't care, cause there's 10x that many that do care; same goes for guys.

I too have problems retracting my foreskin. I find when I'm in the shower or bath the skin is most stretchable and it does not hurt but looks like it could tear at any minute and thats the last thing I want to tell my parents! "Drive me to the emergency/doctor because my penis is bleeding!" I try streching it during the baths I take but I can only do those during the weekends. I may go to my doctor sometime the talk to him about it as akward as it may be. :/

Just ask for steroid cream. I don't care as long as I don't have to show it to him.

I had phimosis up until a few years ago. Not diagnosed or anything but I never retracted my foreskin. I didn't even realize it was supposed to be retracted, I thought all along it was normal. I fixed it by stretching it a bit at a time. Start by stretching it to expose a little more than usual, then do it again on another day. Don't stretch too much if you think it might start to hurt. Doing it after a shower could help.

The problem I had was sometimes the foreskin would curl back into itself creating a double-layered foreskin at the tip I think. I gently pulled it back again to uncurl it but it may hurt a bit. But I think it went away by itself after a couple of hours. Eventually I was able to retract it fully. It wasn't that dirty, just some normal smegma.
