Phimosis is a penis disorder wherein the foreskin or the prepuce of the penis is hard to pull back causing it to be a very painful condition a man can experience. Males, of any age, who have not been circumcised yet or those who really did not undergo the process of circumcision are usually the targets of having Phimosis.

The injury to the penis usually occurs if the prepuce is retracted with so much force. Moreover, as it mostly occurs in males who did not undergo circumcision, this penis disorder is also common in male babies who are just newly-born as the tip of a newborn baby’s penis is naturally tight.

Nevertheless, it should be noted that it is completely normal for newborn males and even toddlers to initially experience a hard time trying to pull back the prepuce of their penis. The good news is that this penis disorder can eventually improve as a male ages.
