    Hi Dylan! Think of it this way - Would you fly in a plane that wasn't working properly? If not, then don't have sex until your penis is working properly. It can be painful if your foreskin doesn't move properly. What you have to do is persevere with stretching your foreskin every time you take a bath. Be patient and gentle. It will be worth it. If all else fails visit your GP who will give you some steroid cream. I doubt he will even take a look so don't worry just be sensible about it.

    I'm a 15 year old diabetic and I keep drinking water and urinating straight after, I crave juice and fizzy drinks and I always have a fruity taste in my mouth. I also get white discharge every single day. Sometimes my lips split on the sides and sometimes I feel dizzy and I sleep a lot even if my blood sugars are controlled

    Take her to another doctor

    Natrapath

    Masterbation can help loosen it, when it's warm and moist it is easier to pull back as well, mental awareness of it can also make people feel unable to pull it back because they are scared it will split or something will go wrong, easiest thing to do is masterbate, wait until errection goes down then pull it back, do this a few times and it should loosen, if it doesnt go to the doc's

    If anyone has facial flat warts this message is for you or your child. My 4 yr old son suffered two years from flat warts on his face. It only started with two on his nose that you couldn't even notice. My GP said that they'll eventually go on their own but within a year they spread all over his face and we're only getting worse. My beautiful son with the face of an angel became so self conscious he started to tell me that he has an ugly face which broke my heart. I tried every treatment from natural remedies like tea tree oil, rose water, olive oil, rubbing garlic on them, milk from figs, sea salt and nothing worked. I tried wart film which almost scared his face, I took him to a naturopath who gave him a dropper medicine which is taken orally and guaranteed me that they will go. All this and nothing worked, devastated so I gave up. One night my son fell and split his forehead on the coffee table which was the last thing I needed. We had that glued up at the hospital but it meant he'll have an ugly scar on his forehead. I started rubbing something everyone is familiar with on his scar, 'bio-oil' purchased from any supermarket or pharmacy (drugstore). I did this in the morning and before bed. After roughly two weeks I noticed that the flat warts around the scar had disappeared. So I started rubbing it on all his other warts ( literally his whole face). I swear to you after roughly two weeks they had all disappeared. I cried when I found that they all disappeared and as a precaution i kept using bio-oil on his face for a month after they disappeared. I don't wish this upon any person, parent or child and I feel it is only fair to share with anyone else struggling with the same issue. After so much failed attempts from specialists to a naturopath to Google searches to everything I tried and something so simple cleared up something so terrible. It's been over a year and my son is wart free with no scar either all thanks to bio-oil. I hope this has been helpful :-)

    Thank you for sharing! My daughter is 13 and has had a wart on her wrist since 1st grade. Was also told it would go away in a few years. The one wart has now turned into 6. We have tried everything to no avail. I am definitely going to buy some bio-oil and give it a go. Thanks so much!
