我的小孩 因为疝 去看医生，医生说同时切包皮
Non surgical methods include:
* Application of topical steroid cream, such as betamethasone, for 4-6
weeks to the narrow part of the foreskin is relatively simple, less
expensive than surgical treatments and highly effective. It has
replaced circumcision as the preferred treatment method for some physicians
in the British National Health Service.
* Stretching of the foreskin can be accomplished manually, with balloons
 or with other tools. Skin that is under tension expands by growing
additional cells. A permanent increase in size occurs by gentle stretching
over a period of time. The treatment is non-traumatic and non-destructive.
Manual stretching may be carried out without the aid of a medical doctor.
The tissue expansion promotes the growth of new skin cells to permanently
expand the narrow preputial ring that prevents retraction. Beaugé treated
several hundred adolescents by advising them to change their masturbation
habits to closing their hand over their penis and moving it back and forth.
Retraction of the foreskin was generally achieved after four weeks and he
stated that he never had to refer one for surgery.
