THis problem is called phimosis. Ultimately there is no choice but to go to an MD for this. However, you certainly should NOT be embarrassed as this is NOT a rare problem. Here is a link that discusses this:

The specialist you should see is called a urologist. Such a specialist would literally have seen this THOUSANDS of times.
