pull your foreskin back the more you do it, the easier it gets
As above. Try doing it in the bath too, the warm water will make it a little easier, you'll get there son.
Expose your penis to alot of water and sun, make sure you give it the right quantities of water and it'll grow after around three months. Trust me, I had biology class once.
Don't trust MisterSjeiks, his penis has been numb for [b]4[/b] weeks now. I stand corrected by MisterSjeiks, I wasn't the one keeping track.
4 Weeks and counting [editline]14th March 2012[/editline] I bet it wouldn't be numb if I had followed my own advice though :v:
For some reason I sometimes get this warm/inflamed feeling in the back of my throat. It mostly happens if I've had alcohol but last Saturday night it happened again while I didn't have a drop of alcohol in me. Anybody got some free medical advice plzkthxbai?
[QUOTE=Mr.T;35132686]I think there is a problem with my dick. When it gets erect the glans doesn't show up it's just the foreskin still covering it. And my foreskin sits very tight around my penis. I'll draw an informative picture to describe my condition. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12054510/penis.png[/img] It looks like this even when it is erect. In fact, you can't even see the glans when my penis is erect or flaccid.[/QUOTE] You have phimosis. Say goodbye to your foreskin (and fapping too).
Woah woah, are you serious? [editline]14th March 2012[/editline] Do you know what I have, almighty knower of all penisrelated stuff?
So, you to think if we sleep with a clean fresh towel over the pillow, the acne disapears? "The Clean Towel technique"

These authors argue that, unless scarring or other abnormality is present, non-retractibility may "be considered normal for males up to and including adolescence."[2] Hill states that full retractability of the foreskin may not be achieved until late childhood or early adulthood.[18] Some pediatric urologists have argued that many physicians continue to have trouble distinguishing developmental non-retractility from pathological phimosis.[3][19][20][/quote] i did a lot of research about this a few years ago because i got a little weirded out, but its perfectly normal if you pull it back more and more each day for a little while, and you're past puberty, and it [i]still[/i] won't retract, then you might have phimosis but in no way does that mean you can't masturbate, or that you have to get circumcised.

You just have to ease into it. In unrelated news, my tachycardia that I didn't tell any of you about is benign, so yay.
[QUOTE=Wux;35138143]So, you to think if we sleep with a clean fresh towel over the pillow, the acne disapears? "The Clean Towel technique"[/QUOTE] i don't think this would really work. sure, it would promote slightly cleaner hygiene on your pillow... but other than that it's not really doing anything at all. the best thing i can suggest is to keep your face clean, by washing twice a day (maybe 3 if you're really greasy, but don't wash it too much or you'll dry it out) and not touching your face. if you have a greasy face (fairly common with acne i think), i know this may seem contradictory, and you're using harsh cleansers on your face to try and reduce the greasiness you may actually be doing more harm than good! your skin naturally produces oils to keep it hydrated, and as soon as you start stripping away these oils to make your face less shiny then your body just produces even more oils to counteract that! i used to have sort of greasy skin (not overly, but i feel as a girl less than perfect skin is always more noticeable) so i used to use all the clearasil, super duper FIGHT SHINE products i could fine... and all it really did was initially dry my skin out, and then the grease would set in and it was just.. not good. and to make things worse, when it dried out i used a harsh exfoliater to make it smoother and it just got worse, causing more breakouts and taking much longer for anything to heal. then i took a bit of advice from my mum, who used to have quite greasy skin, and switched to more natural, much more gentle cleansers. initially i noticed little difference, but after a few weeks my skin was less greasy, and because the cleansers weren't so harsh on my skin, it was smoother and clearer, i was getting far less breakouts and everything. so yeah, although you may think you want to use all the GREASE FIGHTING SPOT REDUCING SUPER AMAZING CLEANSING PRODUCT, maybe try something a little less harsh and see how that works out for you. and then obviously the "get a good diet and drink plenty of water" advice still stands strong. and if you've been doing this for several months and still haven't noticed any improvement then it might be time to visit the doctor and see if they could help you with any medication.
it worked the first few times i tried it but it might have just been a coincidence

[QUOTE=eternalflamez;35132487]Can we know the followup?[/QUOTE] Well, since I don't think it's a "ohmygodimdying"-serious, I got an appointment early on Monday. I'll be back then with more information. On another note, I'll also try to consult my psychiatrist when I can, just to be safe.
There's fur on my Dick do I use scissors and cut it off coos its mouldy?
Remember that elevated heartrate/sternumpain/tightness of the chest i got a few months back? It's back. It's not worse or better now just worrying, I'm gonna speak to my mother about going to the doctor when she gets home but until then, any advice/suggestions, FP?
The right side of my forhead feels very soft. And when I scratch a few very tiny pieces of white shit come out, i'm afraid it's ACNE but i'm not sure since i've never had it.

I have been getting headaches a lot recently, I think its mass effect 3 causing them, they started when I started to play it 3 days ago. I never got headaches from any game before, so I'm just linking the two since that's the only thing that has changed in the past 2 weeks.
