Can't pull foreskin back.

When in flaccid state my foreskin can be pulled back easily. However, in the erect state, I cannot pull the foreskin completely.
It just comes up to the lower part of the head.
If I try to pull it further, it causes pain.
I think it might be a problem for me during intercourse.
Can it be cured without surgery?

hello there.
your condition is called phimosis. you need to see a surgeon. surgical treatment is best. the operation is called circumcision. it's a very small procedure, don't need to be scared.
hope this helps.
