Hi. The underlying infection can be fungal or bacterial. Test for Blood sugar and Urine routine as well. Get treated for the infectoin with appropriate antibiotic / antifungal by seeing a doctor personally. Then it should be easier to pull foreskin and then apply local cream as well based on doctors advise. Prevent in future by maintaing local hygeine on daily basis. We help making foreskin elastic and circumcisision can be avoided in most cases.

Hello, Phimosis is the inability to retract the foreskin behind the head (glans) of the penis. ... Pathologic phimosis occurs due to infection, inflammation, or scarring and is usually found in uncircumcised adult men, in early stages can be treated with, antifungal steroid cream, and cause specific treatment, please consult dermatologist.
