Doctor :   Can you see the red glans part of the penis
User :   no
User :   are there any creams that can be applied
Doctor :   Actually it can tear if you try to manipulate yourself
Doctor :   You can do one thing.
Doctor :   Anyway you got to see a doctor for back pain, you can actually address this problem with him also and see if he can put a jelly and check
User :   hmmm
Doctor :   IT can be a condition called phimosis
Doctor :   in which case it needs a small procedure to release the stuck part
Doctor :   The smegma and not cleaning the area every day during the bath can cause this
User :   but i clean the area more than twice a day
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let us check if it is stuck and it can be manipulated with anesthetic jelly
Doctor :   so that it does not cause pain
Doctor :   THis can be easily managed too
User :   is it only a doc can do it
User :   or can i get the jelly and try
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   If you do it by yourself it can tear and bleed
User :   do i need to see a urologist for this
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   You do not need
Doctor :   You just see a doctor for back pain and the same doctor can manage this
Doctor :   Any local doctor
User :   k thanks
