      An important video describing the phimotic ring/ridged band and how it can be miss-leading when stretching.

      If you have any questions about this video, please use the comments feature in youtube.

      FYI, your doctor can prescribe an ointment with betamethasone that you apply and it will loosen the ring so that you can pull your foreskin back naturally and without pain. The ointment gets rid of the ring that causes phimosis. If there is an infection, there are mixtures of the ointment that come with antibiotics. Please don’t use this product because you are essentially creating more scar tissue that WILL NOT allow the foreskin to stretch naturally. Google it for more info. Hope this helps

        Betamethasone can be formulated to include Clotrimazole, a yeast inhibitor.  Antibiotics are generally not used.

      I am aware of betamethasone and have used it in the past. I think it is helpful, but I am uncertain if it will fix a tight phimotic ring without some stretching.

        It is the stretching which brings success, not the steroid.  The betamethasone is used only as a tool to make the job a bit easier.
