Consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis. Paraphimosis is an emergency. Seek medical attention immediately if your child appears to have paraphimosis.
Your doctor will check for your child’s symptoms. Then they will ask about their medical history. Your child will also undergo a physical examination, where his penis and foreskin will be checked.
Paraphimosis Treatment in Children
Your child’s symptoms, age, overall health, as well as the severity of the condition, will determine the type of treatment needed. Treatment of recurrent paraphimosis also includes:
- Lubricating the tip of the foreskin and penis and gently pushing on the tip of the penis as you tug the foreskin forward
- Making a small cut in the foreskin
Be sure to talk first with your child’s health care provider about the risks, benefits, and possible side effects of all treatments.
