Phimosis should not be strange to male friends. Clinically, there should be a large number of people suffering from phimosis, and children may also suffer from phimosis. Once a boy suffers from phimosis, it will seriously affect the development of the child and directly affect the healthy growth of the child. Therefore, parents and friends should promptly treat the child's phimosis. The following is a detailed introduction. I hope it can help my friends.
Almost every boy is born with phimosis, but if it is not phimosis, it may be suffering from other diseases, such as hypospadias or hypospadias. If most children have physiological phimosis, they have almost no abnormal feeling. If they have abnormal feeling, they may have abnormal symptoms caused by physiological phimosis and need to see a doctor.
From the age of 3-4, the foreskin mouth begins to expand, and the hard skin can be exposed after the foreskin expansion. After puberty (after the age of 17), the number of phimosis children is less than 1%. In general, 90% of physiological phimosis can heal itself at the age of 3-5 years.
The most typical prepuce balanitis caused by prepuce scale
Although physiological phimosis is very common among young boys and most of them can heal themselves, it also brings some problems because the foreskin cannot be turned up and the penis cannot be exposed. For example, because the foreskin of this child cannot be turned up, the epithelial cells and sebaceous gland secretions from the penis head and foreskin cannot be discharged, and remain between the foreskin and the penis head. When some parents brought their children to see a doctor, they mistakenly thought it was a knot on their penis, or even thought it was a tumor. In fact, this is the retention of foreskin scale. This situation will cause some problems, such as secondary infection, redness, and purulent secretion.
When many parents take their children to see a doctor, they mentioned that when the child urinates, the penis will first bulge a small bubble. This is because the prepuce orifice is narrow and cannot be discharged directly through the urethral orifice. It is first discharged into the sac between the prepuce and the penis head, and then discharged. This will lead to the problems of thin urine line and poor urination.
If the child's foreskin is more sclerotic (scaling) from the outside, this indicates that it may cause infection, and parents should pay attention to it. Then pay attention to the color of the child's foreskin when bathing. If it is often red and swollen, it may be infected. You should go to the hospital to see a doctor.
It depends on the length of the foreskin. Generally speaking, it is only necessary to pay attention to sanitation, and no special treatment is needed. However, if the foreskin is particularly long in adulthood and there is a narrow ring pushed back, you still need to go to the hospital for treatment.
We need to have a good communication with our parents, and then there are differences in cultural background and values. For example, the proportion of physiological phimosis surgery in western countries is much higher than that in China. In short, pathological phimosis must be operated, and physiological phimosis needs to be decided after communication between parents and doctors.
It is advisable for boys to have phimosis treated as soon as possible. To sum up, friends should have some understanding. Parents and friends must pay attention to their children's health, do treatment in time, and grow up healthily.
