i went to a private doctor's office and they told me i have phymosis ring and i need surgery,but it's a bit pricy...
i read on the internet that there are various ways(meaning 3 ) to cure phymosis....and the easyest was by using betamethasone....which is a cream....i am 18 years old and i want to know if those creams are any good and if yes....from where i can purchase them.... :roll:

User avatar Hi!

I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with phimosis. Did you discuss with your doctor regarding betamethasone? Is it not available in your local pharmacy/drug store?
