Phimosis is a medical condition that is characterized by limited exposure of the glans clitoridis, the red mass of tissue that stands at the tip of the penis. This happens when the foreskin of the penis tightly sits over the aperture of the penis and cannot be retracted. In uncircumcised male infants, the foreskin is normally tight in the initial years and become retractable as the boy begins to grow. But in case of Phimosis in infants, the foreskin is not easily retractable and neither does it loosen with time. This causes problems during urination and if not corrected in time, can hinder sexual activity.
A: Ozone is toxic. It kills everything. It is very good at killing infections / spirochete bacteria. There are some people who drink ozone water. Personally I don’t think this is a good idea, since it kills even good bacteria that are helping you digest and assimilate nutrients.
However, our family has all swished with ozone water for several days after all of our dental surgeries (5 surgeries for me – 2 cavitation and 3 frenectomy, 1 for my husband -root canal extraction, 2 for oldest child -frenectomy & baby tooth pull, 3 for youngest child -frenectomies).
As for inhaling ozone, ozone is actually in small quantities in the air we breathe anyway. It’s a question of quantity in my mind. Ozone can cause lung scarring and irritation, but you have to inhale enough of it over a long period of time. I have actively inhaled ozone after my dental surgery that turned into a nasty sinus infection. Inhaling ozone is also great way to help with a nasty lung infection, for example. So in some cases, the benefits may outweigh the risk.
Clinically, I can say our family has used the ozone generator daily to wash raw vegetables for the last 5 years. This means we are spewing O3 into the air. I have noticed no problems. Personally, I’m much more worried about the high levels of aluminum we have in our air.
