OK so this is the deal, I'm 20 years old and suffer from a really bad case of phimosis. I've been stretching for some time now, but in a forward motion and not so much pulling it back because it does hurt. i have seen some progress and have seen the foreskin become looser but not enough to even see the glans. recently while i was masturbating i remembered to do my routinely stretching exercise and this time decided to not only stretch the tip of the foreskin but also the area on top and on the sides of the glans. while i did this i hear a suction sound when i pulled it. i did this for about 5 minutes and after a wile notice, what i believe is smegma, ooze out and air would seem to get trapped between the foreskin and the gland and would make a popping noise kind of like when you're trying to get air bubble out of wall paper. My question is should i keep on stretching in this newly found way? or should i try to pull it back? or should i try to stretch out the opening so i can pull it down? and finally can smegma keep a foreskin from successfully retracting?
What about a yeast infection? Did you ever consider to test on it? Because it seems to me that you do have so many similar symptoms. It won't harm if you get tested, you know? Anyway, I know that excessive smegma production is something that you should expect and that is why you need the attention of a doctor. You need to determine what the phimosis causes are in your case, you can get a proper therapy. There are so many methods that maybe can help you treat this at your home, such as a hot bathtub with antibacterial soap and also you can get a rubber bulb ear syringe from some pharmacy store. Ask them how to use it or consult your doctor.
Smegma is a natural, normal, harmless, and healthy substance. It is a mixture of exfoliated skin and skin oils. Smegma collects under the foreskin. It is normally white in color. Some people believe that smegma resembles cream cheese.
It can get irritating if it stays for a long time without being washed away, so it is good practice to wash under the foreskin periodically.
Accumulated smegma may get hardened and difficult to remove if it stays a long time such as under a foreskin that is not retracted. Olive oil has been recommended for softening and removing hardened smegma.
Since smegma is composed of exfoliated skin and skin exfoliation occurs continuously, smegma is continuously forming. You may expect to see more every day.
If your foreskin does not retract then It is really easy to painlessly clean out your foreskin without retracting it. Here are two ways:
1. Urine is a sterile substance when it leaves the body so it is an excellent washing agent. Pinch the tip of your foreskin shut when you pee. Let the urine fill up your foreskin. You will see your foreskin balloon because of the urine inside. Then release the tip and all of the urine inside your foreskin will come gushing out and clean out whatever is inside. This is best done in the shower as it tends to be messy. Do that as often as you can.
2. Get a rubber bulb ear syringe from a drug store, pharmacy, or chemist’s shop. These are designed to squirt warm water into ear canals to clean them out. They also work great for cleaning out foreskins. Fill the ear syringe with warm (not hot) water and then insert the tip of the syringe into your foreskin. Then squeeze the bulb and a jet of warm water will squirt into your foreskin and clean out whatever is inside. This can be done over the bathroom washbasin.
