Sometimes a bacteria buildup can be the cause of the foreskin tightness. It is imperative that you clean out the foreskin every single day. I use a penis health creme that contains Vitamin A as well just to make sure things are extra clean down there. Vitamin A is anti-bacterial and will help destroy any leftover bacteria. These cremes are really helpful. Hope this info helps.

I noticed someone mentioned glanspro and I've tried it for my phimosis . I also recommend talking to your doctor and getting a prescription for betamethasone.

I was diagnosed with phimosis a year ago and the doctor recommended circumcision. After months of research and all the negative feedback about circumcision, I decided to look for a home based solution. I tried betamethasone, which worked at first, but I could feel my foreskin getting tighter, maybe my body got used to it or something. I bought the glanspro and I now i alternate between the glanspro and betamethason. I spend a few minutes a day and so far its worked for me. But again, don't try anything without consulting doctor.
