When I stretch the skin out seem to be a rash more than a bump

Could this just be skin irritation ?

also the head of the penis foreskin isn't the easiest to pull back sometimes
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

This looks like an inflammatory condition called balanoposthitis. You should see your doctor for an exam and they can prescribe a topical steroid cream called betamethasone to help this go away. Hope this helps.

Is this condition serious ? Is this simular to Ballantis, I have a steroid cream right now called daktakort
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

The correct steroid to use is betamethasone. This is not a serious condition, t is highly treatable. Hope this helps and please don't forget to leave me a rating. Thanks.

The cream is what will stop this from coming back. It will take several weeks for this to heal.
