I'm 16 and I've walked on my toes since I started walking. When I was 3 or so, my parents took me to a doctor who told them I would grow out of it. They were uneasy, but decided to trust the doctor because he's a doctor, he must know what he's talking about right? Well, when I was 6 or 7, I still hadn't grown out of it so my parents took me to children's mercy hospital. I ended up having surgery on my Achilles tendons, to lengthen them. I had casts on both my legs for months, I would wake up screaming in the middle of the night because my legs weren't used to sitting normal. Well, I'm 16 now, and my tendons are long enough to walk flat footed, but I still walk tip-toed out of habit sometimes. My legs don't get stiff, my back never hurts, and my feet are pretty big (size 12) so no stunted growth. But my toes naturally sit pointed up like when normal feet are pointing their toes up. And when I point my toes up, I might as well be putting them against a wall. So yeah my toes grew in wrong and that's about the only thing that's wrong with me now. So they fixed me? I'm not sure if I should get my toes corrected or what?

What is the name of the cream you can use to cure tight foreskin? and where can you get it?
