Vaseline can even help

No it has been like this forever, it has never been normal
Expert:  Ross replied 1 year ago.

That will stay that way with your foreskin keeping it moist difficulty to dry it out when covered, it is just from the moisture there

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there any way to dry it out to possibly get rid of the pain?
Expert:  Ross replied 1 year ago.

the only way i knows is the use of Vaseline to break the continues moisture, most prescriptions or over the counter are petroleum jelly based. Goldbaum makes alot of moisture barrier products, give it a try for a month

Expert:  Ross replied 1 year ago.

the skin can absorb its own moisture not that of the opposing tissue that how the Vaseline works.

hopefully that gives you something to try ratings appreciated
