Dear,

Thanks for staying Online.

I am posting my answer below-

In medical terms, it is called as Phimosis.

This is a medical condition, where the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back over the head of the penis (glans).

Here one has tightness of the foreskin of the penis and it prevents the retraction of the foreskin on the glans.

This should be clinically examined and managed by your doctor.

The line if treatment is-

Antibiotics and Hot soaks which help separate the foreskin from the glans.

Your doctor can advise use of a steroid cream to help stretch the foreskin.

If it doesn't work, then under a local anesthesia doctor will do, a small incision to release.

Please start with your primary doctor and get this issue managed.

Hope this helped
