Im 13 years of age and i can pull my forskin back fine. but when i pull it back i see at the side of the head the inside of my forskin is stuck only on the side of the head. will it come off natrually or do i have to see the doctor
Hi John! I'm a bit confused by your statement, you said you can pull the foreshin back fine but then you say it is stuck on the head!!! IF you can pull the foreskin under your head, no problem, IF there is a bit of skin attached to the head - thus not being able to pull it all the way back over the head, then this will eventually go away as you get older! It's a VERY normal thing, keep the area clean and you will be fine! IF you can pull the entire foreskin under your head and you are seeing a line of skin attached to the foreskin - this is called the frenulum - just like under your tongue - it is to protect that you don't pull the foreskin back too far! Hope either answer helps!
It may come off naturally. You probably don't have to go to a doctor.
Baby boys are born with the inner layer of the foreskin fused with the surface of the underlying glans penis. This is natural, normal, and protects against infection. Over some years the fusion spontaneously disintegrates and releases the inner foreskin. This usually happens prior to puberty, but not always.
It is not uncommon in adolescence to have the inner layer of the foreskin still attached to the glans penis. It is not a serious problem.
Apparently, your foreskin has not yet released, although it probably is about ready to release due to your age. You can try peeling the foreskin away from the glans penis to see if you can break the remaining fusion. Do it carefully and little by little. It may take you several tries to get it all.
When you tear the foreskin away, the head will be red in color, where the separation occurred, for a while. Put some Vaseline under your foreskin to prevent it from re-adhering to the head.
If you can’t get it to separate by pulling on it, a urologist can help you. It is called “lysing”. Don’t let anyone sell you a circumcision. It is not necessary and very harmful.
