Brief Answer:
Consider circumcision...

Detailed Answer:

You seem to be suffering with a tight foreskin - a condition called phimosis. You can use lubricant gels and see if you feel better. If it doesn't help you, then you should consider circumcision. This is a minor procedure which can be done at your general surgeon's office or by an urosurgeon. This is not a very expensive procedure and might cost you about 5-7 thousand INR.

Do not hesitate to see a doctor. It is a minor problem and can be treated easily.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
