No it has been like this forever, it has never been normal
Dermatologist: Ross, Doctor replied 8 months 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

Is there any way to dry it out to possibly get rid of the pain?
Dermatologist: Ross, Doctor replied 8 months 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

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