Hi Jacob,

It sounds like it might be infected, I would speak to your parents and take a trip to the doctors to get it checked out. The doctor may refer you to a specialist (a urologist) at the hospital to get more investigations done with the foreskin issue but at your age it is normal for the foreskin to be still attached to the glans. Make sure you’re cleaning properly with warm water and soap to ensure bacteria etc are killed, but by the white fluid and the pain, it may be infected.

Good luck,



How can I clean it because I can't get behind the head?


It was meant in more of a general term to keep your penis clean to help clear and prevent any bacteria.


Cleaning at this point is not critical. Do not use soap on the inside, as it removes beneficial bacteria which are necessary to prevent infection by yeast and/or bacteria.


Also I did go to a urologist and they said it is fine and it will retract in a couple months but nothing has happend


When you were born, your foreskin was firmly afixed to the glans to provide protection against bacteria. The bind naturally loosens in most cases by puberty. Yours may be a bit late, but it’s not serious. If you attempt retraction regularly and frequently, thus applying some gentle tension, it should eventually begin to release. If your able to get your thumbs on two sides of the adhesion, try pulling them apart gently, but firmly. At this point in time, there is no pressing need for full retraction, so take your time.


Whereas your advice to Jacob is very good, I seriously suggest that he should first visit his doctor (or a nurse) at his local GP practice. Today there is a steroid cream which, when topically applied to the foreskin, will loosen its flexibility, thereby allowing it to retract much more freely.

In my day, but as an adult, I visited my doctor with the same condition Jacob is experiencing. Steroid cream was not available and she immediately referred me to a urologist for circumcision.



Betamethasone does facilitate the stretching process, but it’s the manipulation which actually brings the cure. Its use should be only under supervision. Many doctors don’t advise its proper use, so with younger boys, it is usually better to stretch without it.


The white seepage you speak of is probably nothing more than stale smegma - fatty skin deposits after real and beneficial 'smegma' has done its job. It's nothing to worry about at all.



Definitely go back and see your doctor if you are worried. It won't hurt to have a check up and it's better to be safe than sorry.


I had the same problem before I was Circumcised.ask your parents to take You to the doctor first have that checked out before anything.but slowly get ur fore skin used to being retracted. skin is stretchy it will get used to being up n down.

I think that white liquid could be your pre-cum. For the other problem, I think keep trying to make it looser. I did this exercise when I was still in China. When I wank, first I make my dick fully erect, then slide my foreskin up and down over the corona and tip of my glans head until pre-orgasm, then stretch it sideways left and right at the same time. I can now slide it right back with glans fully uncovered. I keep stretching the foreskin like that, up and down, side to side, until I finally start to orgasm and the sperm shoots out.


You're 12... you don't need to be able to retract your foreskin yet. I wasn't but able to do until 16. You just got to be not afraid to stretch the skin. And are you sure that white stuff isn't semen. You're at the age of puberty. Ask your mom maybe if it's just semen.


Do not worry. You are normal for your age. Your foreskin is still developing. You don’t have phimosis You have a normal non-retractable foreskin due to your age.

You are blessed with a protective, highly-innervated, erogenous full-length foreskin. Many unforeskinned guys would envy your foreskin. You display great wisdom in wanting to avoid circumcision.

You should thank your parents for protecting your physical integrity. Because of your physical integrity you will be able to have sex the way nature intended it.



Do not be misled by those who want you to have part of your penis cut off.

Every male starts life with a tight, non-retractable foreskin. Some get looser automatically and some need a little help.

The foreskin is supposed to be tight and non-retractable in childhood so that it provides protection, but it is supposed to retract and glide back and forth in adulthood. Teens are in transition between childhood and adulthood so frequently the foreskin is still non-retractable.

It is not necessary to have a foreskin that will retract. Some men live their entire lives with a non-retractable foreskin. They can masturbate, have penetrative sex, get married, and father children with a foreskin that does not retract.


You may clean non-retractile foreskin with a rubber-bulb ear syringe. Just fill the syringe with lukewarm water and squirt it into the foreskin.

It is easy to make your foreskin wider and looser by manual stretching.


Almost all boys are born with a foreskin that does not retract. This is normal. It takes years for the ability to retract to develop. About ½ of boys have a retractable foreskin by 10.4 years of age. Many adolescents still have foreskins that have tips that are too narrow to pass back over the penis head. These foreskins may be gently stretched over a period of time to cause them to widen. In most cases, the foreskin becomes retractable by age eighteen.

When your penis is erect, gently pull your foreskin back against the head of the penis. As the head attempts to pass through the foreskin it will stretch the skin a little. Do this several times every day and in a few weeks or months your foreskin will widen and you will be able to retract your foreskin. Do NOT force retraction. Do NOT cause yourself pain.

It works by tissue expansion. Stretching skin induces “mitosis” which is a word that means “division of cells”. New skin cells are formed and the skin expands but it takes some time. The increase in size is permanent. Be patient and give mitosis time to work.

The important thing is to put the skin under tension several times every day so that it will grow wider.

Betamethasone valerate ointment, which is available by prescription may help, but it won’t work by itself. Manual stretching is still required.
