A tight foreskin (Phimosis) can be caused by different things; you may be born with it or it can be caused by infections or scarring from previous infections or injury. The treatment you use to loosen it is based on the cause. For that reason, it is important to see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis before trying to loosen it yourself.
