"There are a relatively large number of patients with phimosis and excessive foreskin, which can be seen when a male friend is seven or eight years old. Therefore, as a parent, it is important to pay more attention to whether their child has a condition of foreskin and foreskin. Once it is found that it is necessary to take the child to the hospital for surgery, so as not to affect the future development of the penis.".
1、 What is a redundant foreskin or phimosis
Phimosis refers to the narrow opening of the foreskin, which cannot be turned up to expose the penis. Phimosis is divided into congenital phimosis and acquired phimosis. The slight epithelial adhesion between the inner plate of the foreskin and the surface of the penis head is absorbed, the foreskin shrinks, and the penis head is exposed. If the adhesion is not absorbed, it forms a congenital phimosis. Acquired phimosis is often secondary to inflammation of the foreskin of the penis, resulting in scar contracture of the foreskin opening. If phimosis is serious, it can cause dysuria and even urinary retention. "When foreskin scale accumulates, there can be a itching sensation on the penis.". Chronic stimulation for a long time can induce infection and canceration, leukoplakia, and stone phimosis with small external openings. Occasionally, the foreskin is reluctantly turned up to the coronal sulcus area, and incarcerated in this area without being able to turn down is considered incarcerated phimosis. Over time, the foreskin at the distal end of the incarcerated ring developed significant edema and even necrosis, which can affect urination in severe cases.
2、 Pharmaceutical Health Care Act
1. If there is no inflammation, medication is not necessary.
2. When there is inflammation, it is best to use medication.
3. For those who undergo circumcision surgery, three types of drugs should be used after surgery: anti-inflammatory drugs, such as cotrimoxazole tablets, pain relievers, such as pain relievers and sumitol tablets, as appropriate. Estrogen drugs, such as ethylene glycol, should be used on the day of surgery or within 2-3 days after surgery.
3、 How to perform phimosis plastic surgery
When a boy was first born, his foreskin was small and covered the glans of the penis, making it difficult to see the outer opening of the urethra. However, as the child grows and develops, the glans of the penis gradually pushes forward to open the foreskin opening, and gradually the foreskin appears not to grow. However, some children, due to reasons such as constriction of the foreskin, cannot turn the foreskin up and the glans of the penis cannot be exposed, resulting in phimosis. "If the foreskin can be turned upside down but normally covers the penis and glans like a sleeve, it is said to be too long.".
The phimosis requires surgery. The damage caused by phimosis to patients is significant and can cause ejaculatory pain. If a person with phimosis cannot expose the glans of the penis after measures such as expanding the foreskin during infancy, they must undergo circumcision. The other reason is that the foreskin is long and causes repeated infections, which are difficult to control despite local cleaning and other treatments. In addition, the foreskin is thickened locally and the foreskin mouth is pinched, so circumcision should also be performed. The third is the growth of tumors or other vegetations on the foreskin, such as condyloma acuminatum, which can be circumcised at the same time.
"It is common for children to develop foreskin and phimosis, but it is advisable to receive treatment as soon as possible during childhood to avoid worsening their symptoms, which may affect their sexual life in the future. In addition, this condition can easily lead to diseases such as balanitis and prostatitis. Patient friends should pay more attention and maintain personal hygiene.".
