There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Treatment for repeated phimosis may involve application of a steroid cream to the foreskin up to three times a day for about a month to loosen the adhesive ring. If the child has ballooning of the foreskin during urination after the age of 10, a circumcision (surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin) may be recommended.
Treatment for paraphimosis may involve lubricating the foreskin and tip of the penis and then gently squeezing the tip of the penis while pulling the foreskin forward. If this is ineffective, a small incision to relieve the tension may be performed. An emergency circumcision (surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin) may be recommended.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them.
