If by shrinking you mean that the foreskin opening over the head of the penis is getting smaller, this is a condition called phimosis which can be due to inflammation. You need to see your urologist to examine you and strait you on a steroid cream called betamethasone to decrease the inflammation. If this does not work, then the other option is to have a circumcision done. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
