Hello, are you sure it's because of diabetes ? Because diabetes don't cause tightening of skin. Topical steroid creams  are effective in treating phimosis . But Circumcision (surgically removing part or all of the foreskin) may be considered if other treatments have failed. It has minor risks like bleeding and infection . consult general surgeon.
