What is the treatment for Phimosis and Paraphimosis?
Phimosis that does not cause symptoms does not require treatment. This is especially true in children. If a boy does not outgrow phimosis or there are problems with urination or hygiene, treatment with certain medicated creams, such as hydrocortisone, may be effective.
In some older boys and men with phimosis, good hygiene and prompt treatment of infections may be all that is needed to prevent problems. In other men, persistent symptoms occur, and corrective surgery (circumcision) needs to be performed.
If paraphimosis occurs and the foreskin cannot be pushed back into its normal position, a physician may need to do an emergency procedure to create a slit in the foreskin, or perform circumcision.
