  • Phimosis


Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin, which is the fold of skin that covers the head (glans) of the penis, is too tight and cannot be pulled back over the glans. This condition is considered normal in infants and young boys, but it can become problematic if it persists into later childhood or adulthood.

There are two main types of phimosis:

  1. **Physiologic Phimosis:** This is a normal condition that occurs in infants and young boys. The foreskin is tight and cannot be retracted, but this usually resolves on its own with time as the child grows.
  2. **Pathologic Phimosis:** This occurs when the tightness of the foreskin causes problems, such as difficulty urinating, pain, or inflammation. It can result from scarring, infection, or other factors.

It's essential for individuals experiencing symptoms or concerns related to phimosis to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment recommendations. In some cases, phimosis may resolve on its own over time, while in others, intervention may be necessary to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
