Hello,, if you are unable to pull for skin back, then it is called as phimosis, either due to infection or repeated trauma to for skin it heals by scar tissue and loses elasticity and makes hard to pull it back . in severe cases It will close the urethral opening and unable to pass urine, don't worry in early stages can be managed easily, please consult general surgeon.
