no

what is this happening
Urologist: Dr. Chip, General Practice replied 7 months ago

You have two things going on there--

Vitiligo--that's the whitening of the skin and there's really no specific cause for that

Phimosis--that's where your foreskin gets stuck and that's usually from a fungal/yeast infection called balanitis

Topical over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for two weeks on that part of your foreskin and on your glans will help with both problems and in time you should be able to fully retract your foreskin

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
