Yes I did find that a little problem, was a bit red and itchy as well even cleaning it 3~4 times a day, I found a little spot of vaseline helped a bit with the foreskin movement. Few days later the tip and foreskin got red and itched a a bit so tried a spot of sudocrem helped to ease that.
Couple of days after I had the catheter removed, it got real itchy, red and sore. That turned out to be thrush and was given some canestan for that.
Also I may add but found as well had painful spasms especially at bed time or lying down after a few days as the bladder was trying to reject the catheter and went to my gp who prescribed tablets for that as well.
Wish you well and hopes this helps.
I had no troubles with contipation as I kept up with fluids and fibre intake, I did find however that the meds for the spasms gave me a bit of constipation. Be sure your keep up with your diet if you need the anti spasm meds.
