Circumcision Not Recommended

Paraphimosis is a condition where the foreskin becomes trapped behind the glans penis, and cannot be pulled back to its normal position covering the glans. If the condition persists it should be treated as a medical emergency, as it can result in loss of blood flow to the area and other serious complications such as gangrene.

FIRST AID: Squeeze the glans firmly to reduce swelling. Then, put your first and second fingers on either side of the retracted foreskin (like holding a syringe) and push the glans back into it with the thumb (like depressing the plunger on a syringe). If unsuccessful, seek medical assistance immediately.
