So, in other words, the normal foreskin attachment to the glans, or head of the penis, by a special lining, called the synechia, that gradually disintegrates and results in the foreskin becoming free of the glans and retractable over it, is called Phimosis?
What your Doctor may not tell you about circumcision... page 172
The attachment of the foreskin to the glans is normal and highly protective in babyhood and childhood. Nearly all boys are born with the foreskin still fused to the glans. Over time, the glans
and foreskin slowly separate and develop their own surfaces. This is a natural process of penile development.........Many circumcised doctors in the US are unable to understand - or refuse to understand - these biological facts. They continue to call these natural developmental stages of the penis a “condition” or “disease” called “phimosis” or “penile problems”.....
OK, I got it: I just called my son-in-law (dr.) and he calls phimosis an infection of the foreskin or other problem....(very vague)
But the real definition is Phimosis = Muzzling. Contraction of the orifice of the prepuce, so that it cannot be retracted.
It is not really explained in the book, but I believe it is written for the mother who takes her son to the dr. and he sees a red foreskin and say "phimosis"
I actually think that is the case in the original post. What do you think?
