Thanks for staying Online. I am posting my answer below-

Well, his symptoms can be related with Balanitis.

It can develop due to-

Infection/ Thrush/ bacterial infection.

One could have- pain when urinating, swelling around foreskin. One can have problem in foreskin to put it back.

This is usually not a serious issue and most cases, can be managed with-

Corticosteroid, Anti-fungal and Antibiotic cream.

Most cases of balanitis can be controlled with medicated creams and good hygiene.

Usually in two weeks, one can become free from all symptoms.

He should be seen by Urologist and get this managed.

Hope this helped
