My 2 year old son's penis tip has a very narrow opening. The foreskin at the bottom part is quite flexible, but it seems to be attached to the inner meatus at the tip. When I try to pull back the foreskin for cleaning gently, the inner meatus is hardly visible. Earlier, he used to have ballooning while peeing. After application of a corticosteroid cream (Betamil GM) for a couple of months, the ballooning has gone completely. But, the opening is very tiny. He has not complained of any pain as yet, but I am just curious to know if I should worry. Thank you.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Most of the time, steroid ointment that you have applied will help. In your case, it has helped.
So, do not worry even if the opening is small as long as there is no ballooning of the prepuce.
You can get a circumcision if you want to get rid of this problem altogether. But, no hurry to get it done.

Query: Hello doctor, To make a long story short, I used scotch tape and micropore tape respectively on my penis. Two straps of tape were attached to the penis in the form of a cross, so that they met in the tip of the penis' head, while the ends went all the way down to the skin of the shaft. This allowed...
