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.
