hi there - i have been told to seek advice here, as some of you may have experience of my situation,
my fiance, is 28, and has for the majority of his adult life suffered with cracks on the tip of his foreskin, they are painful for him, and they make sex uncomfortable, as when the forsekin retracts over the glans the cuts pull and bleed and then are very stingy,
he has been embarassed about this for a long time but has only recently attended our gp to seek advice. they advised circumcision.
i really don't want him to do it. i have read about it and believe it is mutilation, i would never dream of having my labia cut off, why would he want to do it, he says he read a leaflet and it will solve problems and he wants to.
they have given him a steroid cream but he doesn't know what to do with it, and also has a phobia of touching creams - i usually apply any creams or ointments for him -
will the steroid cream help to avoid circ or is it just to make him more comfortable while he awaits the surgical appointment?
any advice gratefully received.
