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

Hi Kelly. Of course you will be able to avoid circumcision. Most 4 year olds have tight foreskins because they have never pulled them back. Remember to use the cream as directed but he will also have to gently stretch his foreskin back every day. It's usually a good idea to do this in the bath as the water softens the skin and makes it easier. Supervise initially but always let him do it and it can then be part of his normal bathing regime. Thanks for watching...I couldn't recall the episode that you watched!! Take care. Hope this helps
