You can also try this device called glanspro. It is used as a phimosis treatment which can be used at home.

There are several ways of treating phimosis. One option that should be considered is gradual stretching. I've found a product that uses the stretching power of a spring to accomplish treatment over time as you wear it. It is available at phimosisrelief dot com and also available on eBay. I wanted to share this in case it can help others suffering from this condition.
