The prepuce of the penis is stuck after turning up, which is called "incarcerated phimosis" in medicine, and can occur at any age, but it is common among children and adolescents. All kinds of reasons make the foreskin turn up and block the head of the penis, which can form phimosis incarceration. Due to the obstruction of blood circulation, the penis will have edema and pain, which will gradually worsen, and in serious cases, it can lead to penile ischemia and necrosis.
Treatment methods include:
1. Manual reduction. Apply a small amount of lubricating oil on the head of the penis, soak it in ice water with gauze or small towel, or wrap a little broken ice, and compress the head of the penis. After cold stimulation, the erect penis will shrink quickly, and then put both thumbs against the head of the penis, the forefinger and middle finger clamp the foreskin, and pull it hard, then the foreskin can be turned down and reset.
2. If the phimosis is severely embedded, the prepuce edema is severe. You can use a sterilized needle (after burning red on the flame or disinfecting with iodine wine) to gently prick the swollen prepuce for 3 to 5 times to make the prepuce edema subside, and then cooperate with manual reduction to turn the prepuce down.
3. After severe foreskin incarceration and tumbling down, to prevent infection, the penis can be soaked in tea or 1:5000 potassium permanganate solution, and locally applied with moist burn ointment or tetracycline ointment.
4. If the penis is incarcerated for a long time and the manual reduction fails, go to the hospital for treatment immediately.
