Phimosis refers to the inability to retract the distal foreskin over the glans penis. Pathologic phimosis defines an inability to retract the foreskin after it was previously retractible or after puberty, usually secondary to distal scarring of the foreskin. Paraphimosis is the entrapment of a retracted foreskin behind the coronal sulcus. Paraphimosis is a disease of uncircumcised or partially circumcised males....Up to 95% of cases of phimosis have been shown to respond to application of topical steroids to the preputial orifice, although some studies have suggested that this response rate may decline several months after the regimen is completed. An initial attempt at medical intervention has been shown to reduce costs by 27.3% in comparison with primary circumcision as a treatment...consult nearest urologist they will help you further Regards

Hi there...I can understand your concern. It looks like you could be suffering from phimisis (inability to completely retract foreskin). It is seen commonly in conditions like balanoposthitis, diabetics. Sometimes it can occur naturally also. Treatment options include, excersise in mile cases and circumcision surgery in severe cases. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation and treatment.
