The phimosis is a disease that brings discomfort and shame in the young adult and he would rarely showed it to the doctor or to the mother. How your mother become aware of your problem and how she decided to try to cure it herself?
You are right, Yoanna, I was ashamed to show the problem to my mother, let alone anyone else, but I was also afraid because of the phimosis, so I decided to tell her about it. She got a little scared and demanded I show her the problem, so I had no chance but let her examine my penis. My mum thought it best to take me to the doctor, who prescribed a cream I had to apply on the glans and foreskin and then slowly stretch the foreskin. He said my mum should regularly check on my progress, so sometimes after showering my mum asked that I would pull back my foreskin and sometimes tried herself to see how far back it could be moved.
